A Poem by TerryDarcy-Ryan akaSheerTerror

"grip pf blood and sand"


the light sways each break

cast upon waters wake

constant movement capture

waves reflecting shimmer

refractive glass splinter

mirage slicing a mirror 

each simple twists of fate 

swim deep in retreat

die beneath the stillness

a silent repose of agonies sleep

trapped in drowning grief

swallowed by misery's caress

beached in sorrows weep

crawl the shore 

on battered knees

the beat of a fist concede

grip of blood and sand 

bury a heart already gone

pounding the sum 

the pulse of a drum

a beggars demand

trembles in a shiver

to breath

bravo. as i read, i felt totally helpless as i fought the waters only to be deposited in some lost, faraway place where i did not wish to go and worse didn't know what would happen there.. very unnerving and uncomfortable read. you've brilliantly captured the essence of how it would feel ... :)
