Cave diving in Pennsylvania

Under a blue wave, cold
And pressing down. A few familiar
Faces, here sinking under water deep.
But you must wake up, you sleep,
You dream, you’ll drown, here
There’s only enough air
For a short trip down. Head back,
Up through currents away from fading
Phantoms now so dark, the sun
Commands you, rise and crest.
Find yourself alone at-sea, swimming
With what strength’s left.
And if you cannot find a boat,
Well, you’ve got time so,

I write stuff when something begs to me to write. The goal is to write ten-thousand things before I die. I tend to be morbid, reflective and personal.
