A Call From The Deep

Poetry By: Gracie Bain

A poem I wrote in the midst of feeling very overwhelmed by my screaming, fussy baby.

A Call From The Deep

I sit surrounded; chaos everywhere

Close my eyes and dream I'm there

Toes in the sand of a beautiful beach

It's so close now, within arms reach

The water beckons; it pulls me in

Feeling it crash against my soft skin

Do I dare leave this all behind?

The water, up to my waist now, clearing my mind

Yes, I can do this, leave it all in the past

Through another day this comfort should last

Up to my chest now, still pulling me in

Deeper and deeper; it's up to my chin

Take a deep breath, memorizing the view

Under I go; my comforts renew

Holding my breath; slowly counting to ten

Water relaxing and refreshing again

Open my eyes and I'm back in my bed

Once again ready to kiss my son's sweet head
