23. This Ocean, These Waves

This ocean, these waves,
that drown me with each push;
I try to tread, but sink.
And as I descend, I look up
at the lights that bounce around me;
the silvery glittering of water
upon the rocks.
I sink lower and lower
into a dichotomy of emotion
where the water is calming,
but the rocks are jagged
and foreboding;
the colors calm and soothing,
but the circumstance dire.
And in these moments,
I try to avoid the rocks.
