The Shadows of the Sea

Do you know what’s it like to be battered by waves so harsh you cannot feel yourself on the floor?

That your feet fly up before you? Leaving your body behind.

To navigate the uncharted waters of a dangerous sea.

Waters that have killed those before and seek to drown you.

And then to sink?….the demons of the sea pulling you into their depths to join their underwater hell.

A hell that does not burn with fire but with shadow.

Shadows that move with faces of the past, flashes of the night and silent fingers that stroke the forbidden places of memory.

A hell that has no end but instead endlessly plays in flashes and nightmares that never ends.

So do you know what it’s like to be battered by waves so harsh you cannot feel yourself on the floor?

And do you know what it is have your feet fly up before you? Leaving your body behind?

Because if you do – then you are like me and you have lived with the shadows of the sea.
