Open Water

Open Water

A Chapter by chrysantheranium

Broken legs against
The ceramic bowl
Of ocean water

You take the reigns,
You dance in silence
With your two
Left feet

Wish away, wash away

Raise the sails, and forward ho
Broken legs, take me where I need to go.

Author's Note

Ignore basic grammatical errors, as there are some rules that, as a writer, I don't care to abide by. I feel restricted when following these rules, and since I have such a hard time getting my thoughts across, I'd rather break a few rules than be grammatically "perfect."
