HomePoetry StoriesRiptide


The waves roll in 
Hard and strong 
They crash and roll 
Over her tattered soul 

She’s trapped in a riptide
Spinning and churning 
Pulling her helplessly down 
To a Depth unknown 

The struggle is real 
The surface seems so near 
She fights to rise above
But the battle is too much alone

The monsters glided in
So smooth and sleek
Full of grace and beauty 
Appearing to be so meek 

The warning signs were there 
He didn’t want to see
Mesmerized by the light 
Until that fatal bite 

She now floats in a timeless abyss
As they circle close nearby
Gliding seamlessly along 
Searching for their next kill

She struggles for her saving breath 
Reaching out for his helping hand 
The one that pulls her up 
To safe dry land
