Man, at sea or upon the shore, struggles to stay afloat.

Rudderless in a sea of broken dreams,
My declining state of mind entwines with a
Tentacled sargasso that pulls me downward,
Downward into black, cold, unrelinquishing water.
 
I love the land and all her beauties but do fear the sea
And have never gladly nor willingly ventured upon a bark
In search of adventure high or low that would risk my terra-
Bound life by the perils oft regaled by les ultimes survivants.
 
Adrift in my thoughts, I roam the scary shores of what this craven
Man fears the most, the uncharted waters of the soul and spirit that
Will surely swallow down whole this flailing, gasping wretch until every
Sign of life, hope and vitality are extinguished in Death's throes victorious.
