OCEAN

Starfish

My disseminated veins

Extend like the arms

Of a baked starfish

Thirsting for the salt

Of an extroverted mercy

Diversion

I sought compassion

In the sea, in salient tides

That furnish diversion

Secret Garden

I’ve traveled the fathoms

Of a skeletal garden

Searching for the key

That would unlock,

Once and for all,

The crimson doors

Of my ailing mind

Scrutiny

The surface seared

A enigmatic sun stalling

In the hem

Of an empyreal robe

She held me captive

Beneath her scrutiny

I burned, as if a fiend

Held against a cross

That could not bless

Without slaughter
