Life in the deep ocean.

Skirting along the bottom,
Blinded, and cold, I slither:
Finned and scaled I glide
Looking for prey: I starve.

Cannot reach the surface,
Cannot feel any warmth
Rippling along my back:
Light flickers too far above.

Out of sight and sound
I meander for days below.
Eyes darkened, heart cold,
I suffer the bends for you.
"Oh what a misery it is to have an intellect in splints".

I love this in particular:

Skirting along the bottom,
Blinded, and cold, I slither:
Finned and scaled I glide
Looking for prey: I starve.


...and this:

Eyes darkened, heart cold,
I suffer the bends for you.


It's almost reminiscent of Coleridge...a bit fantasmic and yet powerful in theme.

Another great one...I also like how it packs an emotional punch with its brevity...sometimes the shortest poems are the most stirring.
