Engulfed​ by the ocean

Breath. Cold air sliding down my throat, Each intake peeling reality New flavours evolving to gloat. Breath. Salt itching at my lungs, Coarse ocean waves seeming to crash With each move of my tongue. Breath. The song of sailors escaping​ my lips, Their ancient call one of history Of the battle of ships.   Savor …

The sizzling burn of skin

My skin is blistered Angry it moans about the mid-afternoon heat, Raw and painted red Skin screaming in defeat. The air is stagnant No cool breeze for relief, The sun’s rays pinching me Eyes watering in grief. I wish I could sail away Chilled sea foam slipping between my toes, Cold water easing my discomfort…

A note carried by waves

A note carried by waves. The water shivers With the weight of the bottle, Surface bubbling Eager to throttle. A note carried by waves. Saltwater licking the glass Tounge savouring the taste, The sea swirls Currents beginning the chase. A note carried by waves. The storm begins to brew Ocean angry to read, Words fighting…

The battle cry of the seagulls

A belly full of giggles. Her mother grasped her hand, Pulling her along But her feet dig into the sand. A belly full of giggles. The seagulls call an endless cry, Laughing, she copies their song Her arms twirling high in the sky. A belly full of giggles. The sun beats down on​ the ground,…

Tendrils pushing out to the other colours, appearing like veins, it sucked the other colours until the only thing left was the dark….

The winter air bites only the weak (a mage in training, part 6)

Swallowed, engulfed by water that dragged her down as if she weighed nothing. Her lungs stung, pinching they demanded air, their cries vibrating throughout her form. Ash was frozen, her body slowly sinking, but her mind whirled. Perhaps others feared the sea. It’s powerful currents and waves could kill a human in seconds so Ash…

Suffocated by the sea

Wind. Currents pulling her long hair, Strands gathering Into the salted air. Sea. Waves rocking the supposedly sturdy boat, Water splashing the deck As if to gloat. Trip. A mistimed step against drenched wood, Echo of yells Where she no longer stood. Freeze. A frozen moment where she floats above the wave, Seafoam​ kissing her…
