She Could Never Learn To Swim




she could have -
     waded through her tears
     glided past her fears
     played with the tide
     paved a joyous ride

then, without a trace, she sank
drowning in dream, sadly blank

lost in waves, her innocent whim
she tried
     but could never learn to swim
   
   
This Poem is shared with Poets United Midweek Motif - Swimming.
