God's got you on His potter's wheel. Jeremiah chapter 18.


As the waves glisten
In the Setting Sun
The Water sparkles like diamonds

I sit on the shore
And listen to the sound of–Nothing
The sand is floating away

Down into The Abyss
Into the nothingness of the ocean
I see–blowfish–passing by

On my way to the New World
Where is it dark and cold
Damp and Damp can be

The boat is starting to rock
And nothing can stop it
Until I am at Sea

As I go under deeper, deeper
The water swallows me whole
I am nothing but a bubble
In the Ocean’s soul.


The author's comments:
I based this poem on Emily Dickison, she writes in her own style, I tried to imitate her writing style. I think i did pretty well. She writes about death mostly, some may ask if she was in love with death, nobody can answer that question, not even Ms. Dickinson.

"She was fascinated with words. To her words were things of beauty, each like a magical powder or potion that could be combinded with other words to create powerful spells." From: Lighting(By: Dean Koontz)

I like this poem, and I see the relation to Emily Dickinson. Very Good. :)
