Sweet Dreams

no horizon

seas starved sky bleak

abyss where tubed monsters victims seek

 

thoughts like serpents

regrets black orcs

airless tides of fear where no one talks

 

scaly remorse

shoals of regrets

but no sane fisherfolk cast their nets

 

carnivorous,

my flotsam of shame

spins round whirlpools without a name

 

encased in lead

how can lungs breathe

at depths where sucking starfish seethe?

 

tentacles rear

krakens waking

ocean graveyard of this devil's making

 

the dream's the same

never changes

across my seabed some leviathan ranges

 

"try to wake now"

bright surface nears

I'm treading water in a brine of tears

Again like the metaphor of the sea and its creatures. Great writing and lots of original use of words.
