Favorite Quote:
"Through humor, you can soften some of the worst blows that life delivers. And once you find laughter, no matter how painful your situation might be, you can survive it."- Bill Cosby


Enticing.
Your beauty as it flows in the water
Each movement precise
Each appendage moving in sync

Captured.
As I carelessly am wedged in a web
A web of translucent bars and lattice work
Forbidding me to swim free

Paralyzed.
Your network of wires are electrocuting
How am I to escape my fate,
Of being trapped in your cage?

Pulsating.
Your venom tears away at my flesh
Scale by scale, bone by bone
I’m just another meal to you

Carcass.
I didn't even stand a chance, did I?
You evil little jellyfish monster
Spitting my remnants out heartlessly

Drifting.
My bones fall away to the ocean floor
I already miss the day when I swam freely
Without a care in the world
