crimson

a sea of red
came suddenly
these tides were not
peaceful
a ship in a storm
something from a novel
moby dick struggled this time
what a fight, 
really
waves crashed over the hull
and brought me under
leaving me to drown
with only a rock at
the bottom to caress
these unborn bones
an anchored umbilical
connecting me to the depths

all that is left of me
is crimson.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
