Sinking Ship

Last night I had a dream
aboard a sinking ship i stood alone
Hands on cold metal railing
i peered into blue
Watched as no help came

Ocean’s calm surface
Mask devastation deep
Its frigid water like tentacles
Wrapping around
Pulling, swallowing

I did not scream
Or ask for help
Plead or beg
I watched
Beauty

Blue all around
Above in the sky
Below in the water
In resignation
Of what is
