Oceanic Dreams

Oceanic Dreams

A Poem by WillaDanvers

For so long I've been lost in my personal life that I lost touch with my love of writing. I aim to find that again.


Donning the colours of the sky,

Imitating the twinkling of stars,

Softly lapping at our restful toes,

Lulling us into false peace,


The first of many, a brilliant cool,

Hiding that of which we may fear,

Only to show us when we cannot fight,

The darkest of our nightmares, dare we do?


Some venture beyond the surface,

The thrill of adrenaline, deeper we go,

Finding new and many more, unexplored,

But none dare speak on the lives lost,


Some lost air, many a lost life,

Pulled beneath the colours of blues,

Thrown down by the pretence of white,

Crashing into the golden but not so soft,


How far can we go before we can’t?

Eye sight lost and lungs in desperate need,

Competition states your failure, not determined,

You weren’t found again, another one claimed,


Occasionally a dark violent reminder,

Thrashing on our doors, screaming in our ear,

Hurtling lies and fear into our day and age,

Ne’er can we escape nor forget permanent,


Again, donning the colours of the sky,

Coated in sugar, luring us to the edge,

Dip a toe in, take a second plunge,

Purely innocent, free from the land,


Imitating the twinkling of stars,

Captivating the warmth of the sun,

Pulling at our dreams, forth we go,

Venturing beyond the blue of sea.
