In the depths

in the depths poem by Jodie McCarthy

I notice it already,

the shortness

of breath

the tightness

in my chest

 

I don’t want to venture

below

the surface

 

the shallows

are safe

and known

 

the deep

is murky

and unclear

 

yet

something

draws

me

under

 

a faint glimmer

in the gloomy dark

a hint that

perhaps

there

is treasure

to be found

 

so, I breathe

deep

and dive
