The Waters Are Calling

The Waters Are Calling

A Poem by Enigma

She looks ahead
At the infinite blue

Suppressing and hiding

Secrets untold, unheard


She feels the waves crash against her

As she cuts through their flimsy existence

A not - so - substantial substance

Wondering how many have cut out their way

Through her

And how many more will

Thinking if all her depth is an shadow

So shallow

That all her people

Stop by, dip their feet, and move on


She treads on the soft pebbles

And dwells on her stoned dreams

Tripping and stumbling

Pressured into an existence

Unknown, unwanted


The waves push against her rage

With one of their own

But every watery crash and pull

Seems to pull away with itself

One more selfish thought

One more disappointment

Another bit of the darkness that has settled over her


A new adventure calls to her

From the flooded crevices of the sea-bed

Inviting her to lose the imposed

And forge herself anew

Discover one-ness 

And forgo the body that chain her to a gone reality

To be a stream of consciousness

Mingled, with the waters

Floating to the unknown

To find herself, in her own depths


She looks ahead, a moment too long

And with each of her retreating steps

She traces the trail, leading her

Away from a freedom

To easy to earn

Too difficult to accept

Beautiful poetry! The metaphorical notion of the waters force is well done and carries though congruently throughout the context of thought. Deeply emotional journey that I find quite moving and easy for this reader to relate to.

I love your wonderful though so eloquently penned...A most excellent poem...
