Atlantis

Submerged under a thousand feet
of waves upon my chest.
I swim towards the surface and
forget all of the rest...
A timeless scene was held below,
a treasure cove of gold.
A kingdom sunk, forever lost,
where skeletons grow old.
It saddens me to think of it
Ball rooms and dancing feet.
Courtyards and hidden alley streets,
where lovers used to meet.

This is wonderful! It's so short and simple and sweet and yet it means so much. This is amazing. I love how it sounds when I read it aloud. I really like this.

Lost hope.... that's what came to my mind when i read this. Descriptive but to the point; short and sweet. It's like how Atlantis was trying to be found but in the end, faded underneath despite it's work. I like this poem. You're an outstanding writer.

Even though it's a fictional place, the way you incoperated it into your poem was great! I loved it!

  Yay for short poems! It shows a lot of finesse that you were able to convey such a vibrant image in so few lines. I really like the emotion you worked into this. I mean, it’s a fictional place, but you are totally right—it is sad! Little things like that can really make a piece.

Good rhythm and rhyme. I think "ballroom" is all one word, but that's the only thing I'd point out. :)

I enjoyed this poem because of the simplicity of the work. It wasn't so simple to where I was numbed by boredom and lack of uniqueness but I appreciated it because I could fill in my own vision and emotion of the under water city.
