Experiencing Underwater Breathing

Experiencing Underwater Breathing

A Poem by kera moondust
"

mostly because I'm a scuba diver.

"

I’ve never been suspended in space

And I probably never will have the

Chance to be

I won’t witness the earth cycle like the moon

In empty planetary sky’s

 

But I imagine it feels something like

Breathing underwater

I wasn’t born with gills like my

Older brothers ex best friend

And I couldn’t even swim

Until I almost drown once

 

But I have spent some time

                Breathing

                                Underwater

And even with this

Thirty pound tank strapped to my back

Suspended sixty feet deep

I’ve never felt more

           Weightless

 

You see the light from the surface twinkles

In this way that makes my skin look like

It has been infused with diamonds

Until the only color these eyes can see

Is this cerulean scenery

 

I was suspended above this vacant alien world

Born and breathing under our noses

Before I had any recollection of heart break

Love

Or pain of any kind

 

In that moment

My heart didn’t beat like birds wings

It was the soft gliding fins of my

Venomous

                Sting

                                Ray
