I am a bubble. A pocket of air thats surrounded by water.
I live in the lake by the ocean.
I stay in my bubble. The ocean isn’t safe.
It crashes and cries and hurts
So i don’t go near the ocean.
The ocean has lots of things
Salt, To rub in your wounds,
Sand, To throw in your eyes,
Coral, To cut your skin,
And water. To drown you in.
The ocean uses these things to hurt the koi.
The koi lives in the ocean, you could say.
The koi is controlled by the ocean.
The ocean and the koi used to get along,
They used to help each other
But now the koi is only hurt by the ocean.

Too salty.

Too harsh.

The koi and ocean made me.
But now i stay away from them
Because I dont want to see the koi being hurt by the ocean.
