Trying out a new style.

Part of that world

Water based life form.
I am a stranger here.
A unstable visitor, never meant to stay too long.
But, when I go I wish I hadn't.

Floating above.
I wish to be apart of all that I see,
this little mermaid in me;
wanting to be...

Cannot be absorbed.
I would walk among on those,
what do you call 'em? Feet.
But walking, my legs grow tired and fall beneath me.

Wanting to be loved.
Abandoned and free,
no longer longing to be...
Voiceless in this day dream.

Breathing in deep...
I push my fears away,
they always gnaw at me.
Begging that a price be paid...

My senses overwhelm me in true reality.
I am but a fish out of water.
I cannot breathe.
I must return to where I came, I must return to me.

Choking, coughing, and crying as I leave.
This shapeless vapor brings me to my knees.
What flow of life I wish to be,
but the wind cannot calm me.

I am back to where I once was.
Looking up at the sky above,
thinking of the ones with little feet that tread above me.
Wanting again to be...

Water based life form.
Floating above.
Cannot be absorbed.
Wanting to be loved.
Breathing in deep...
My senses overwhelm me in true reality.
Choking, coughing, crying as I leave.
I am back to where I once was;
wanting to be -
