Raging Sea

November 18, 2011
I am the ocean
On a stormy night
These waves of confusion--
Angrily disturbing
My usually Serene disposition—
Crash, sending the white, fluffy sea -foam
Floating on the water surface
Like the dead bodies
Of sailors thrown overboard.

Yes, I am the raging sea
I can feel the rain
Pounding on my back
And the thunder encourages me
To overturn the frightened ships
And drag all those innocent people
To the very bottom of my stomach
To suffocate and gag them
Until not one more breathe escapes from their lips
And their heart no longer thumps
And their bodies stop flopping
Like fish out of water.

Only then will my hunger be satisfied
only then will I calm.
