 I went swimming

I went swimming because i thought that i would find love beneath the sea.

I went swimming- thinking, feeling & observing that my life was empty.

I thought that by stripping, swimming & fleeing to beneath the cold dark floors of the blue sea,

I would find the strongest sea weed & onto which I will bind my ties with insanity.

Finally, prolonged pain, I will eternally leave behind that dark blue sea.

Eternally.

 

I went swimming to beneath the dark hues of the wild blue sea,

hoping to find the furthermost, firmest & strongest sea weed.

I went swimming beneath the heavy blue black torrents of the angry blue sea,

hoping to bind my worries onto that strongest sea weed.

I went swimming beneath the vicious, unforgiving, terrifying torrents of the dark blue sea,

hoping that- that strongest sea weed rescues me.

 

I went swimming to beneath the curvaceous, delicious, heart glorifying, overwhelmingheart of the cold, cold blue sea,

hoping to find something.

Finding it difficult to find love.

wanting to be found.

Finding it difficult to find that I needed love.

hoping to be found.

I went swimming beneath the curvaceous blue sea, to the heart of the cold brutal blue blue sea,

hoping that love finds me.

 

I went swimming to beneath the unforgiving, seldom loving, electrifying blue sea,

hoping it would spare me from this painful delivery.

I went swimming hoping that it would- from my mind, body & soul, 

  cancel this pregnancy of worry.

 

I went swimming into the dark blue sea,

hoping that- from this inflation from this obssession with this suffering,

 I would be free.

I went swimming because I thought that from the soul of the sea's dark hues &haunting blueness,

I will find the strongest & furthermost sea weed, onto which I will bind all my pain & worries.

Life- I went swimming to beneath  the dark blue cold sea,

hoping to free myself from your conspiracy.

Desperate to achieve what my heart needs.

Only to find - no matter how deeply I lunged into the blue sea,

in my heart, you still with me,

and always will be.
