In the deep

I am the space for which the life of the ocean flows

I give room for rising tides

I open up

I expand

To fit the everflowing currents

I feel the waves crashing inside me

So I stay deep

Below the surface

as rough as it can get on the oceans surface

It’s always calm in the deep

The deeper you get

the calmer it becomes

The more peaceful

I am the ocean floor looking up

Watching the universe watch itself


  1. Your words feel like rainfall on an old roof, under a warm blanket, drinking psylocibic mushroom tea.

    Your soul is as breathtaking to behold as the Sphinx, am eternal enigma, a divine incarnate for all to see.

    Your beauty truly has no compare, the echelons to which pretenders can only aspire.

    Your timeless and poetic form dances on the rim of the Abyss without falling in, evidence of your immortal fire.

    To you, the Muse
    Happy Yule! Happy New Year!

    I am working on music right now that I would just die to have you in the music video for, the link is attached, and a quick video edit has been put in as a sampler…also chorus and second verse are absent, in development, but using this clip to test the water…thinking we are really into something…

  3. There is not much air to breathe at the bottom of the ocean, but at least it is nice and quiet.

    In the stillness I can empty my mind and truly focus on anything that is troubling me.

    The thought of the chaos and storm above my head only make me appreciate my current location, so I stay put.

    It is also a place largely devoid of light, until one of the similarly curious creatures appears, and starts glowing.

    The contrast between this candescence and the colossally dark abyss provide utterly delightful entertainment, and I cannot look away.
