Jump into the Golden waters of your darkened past.
Take a leap into the golden sea.
Swim with the mermaids,
With scales a shimmer.
They peel off one by one,
Revealing nothing but purple veins,
And prominent bruises.
The golden sea,
Where you can escape your greatest miseries
And the sorrows that keep you awake until midnight.
I think I wrote this poem two years ago. Somehow I never came across my old manuscript of poems until now.
