Lost In The Abyss

(Image Credit: Martin Stranka)

I look at the depth
and I see love
deep, mystical
alluring and calm

I leap
and like those promises
my body entangles
in a mess
the heart, a fragile token
of memories
lost in the abyss

I measure not the pain
but a silent whisper
that seeps into my soul
caressing the wound
and then I grow weak
like the faltering echo
I wither away in rhymes
