I am a free diver      and I want to die    where I belong , in the sea .

In its mouth I lay me broken white


Nothing  can be heard that deep they say

Oh     how I long to prove them wrong


Listen  to the colour of the sound  breaking

On every bubble in release

No sound  can compare  to sounds

Gone       going       gone

Even the faint sound of my name

Reborn   into every known colour


Hold me here        I beg of you

Even after my last bubble  has escaped me

And let my sleep

Reach your darkest bed          heavy


To your womb  I give myself back

Having seen and tasted           smelled and heard

Every corner of what simple sunlight gives


Birds   no longer have a song

In you    they only come    as I       to

Relocate their path

Death     is heard as

Silence                     singing white

this was beautiful and captivating.
it's very melodic; almost like a siren's song.

You take me with you where ere you go.

Beautiful. I'd love to hear this read at a poetry night or something... Would sound lovely.

nothing like the wave of silence as exit music hun

D'Antay Web
In every crest and bubble; your prose bursts forth; unraveling spectrums of light; a angel in heavenly clouds of gushing white light's - ebbing waves in the emotions of life and requiem. Your stanza rises above surface apperances and confides its existence in celestial heights of your medium - a truely beautiful, 'subjective' mesmeric and sensually poised piece, i felt... New beginings start with a sense of being, a sense of 'home', and freedom. God bless and blessings be, as always.
