North Atlantic Nightmare This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.

   Terrorizing dark and deep

Clouds meet the horizon

I wonder how far I've gone by now

So I keep my eyes on

The sea

Gulls squawk relentlessly. I simply cannot hide from

The wind

It keeps on blowing my board across the sea.

No one knows where I have gone to

I don't know just where you are

Ten thousand miles away from shore

Ten thousand miles too far

The seagulls do not stop they are coming down to eat me

My paranoia never ends, the wind forever blows.

The storm clouds give no shelter

The sea provides no smile

Ten thousand days I'm lost at sea

Ten thousand days I've cried

So I cower in a corner but the seagulls still attack

Ten thousand days I've fought but now I give up fighting


I face a pitch black sunset

Huddled in a corner

Because I cannot find a place

To safely bury my bone

I find myself helplessly

Being dragged down by the stone

Of frozen warmth

And frozen love

Of which I know no more

I find no peace in slumber

I find no sleep in dreams

I wake up from my nightmares

To find my

Nightmare on the sea.
