I step upon a frozen sea,
its inky glaze a reflection of me.
Dark, dank, and full of despair,
I sink, crushing waves rising to enslave.
I am bound for home, so they say.
Salt stings, the bone deep cold exposing their lie.
A dark storm stirs, steals the fading light.
I fight, regret, but it’s too late,
their barren promise has consigned me to the night.
I should have known,
there is no such place as home.
Written by Salena Lee
Poetry is still new to me, but I love to play around, and give things a go. I didn’t think I would enjoy it as much as writing friction, but I do.
As morbid as it is, the poem is about someone who longs for home, and after hearing their whole life about a heavenly home waiting for them in death, they decide to jump into the sea to find it. Instead of a bright light and heavenly father waiting to greet them, all they discover is darkness.
