Sweet Death!


On the waves
lost on a wrong place
too big and vast
and the time urges
please,
the surface!

but my breath is not the same
and i sink
breathlessness into the deep
into the blue

Am I on the ocean?
Am I on tears?

not for longer

by my numb mind
i accepted the dive
as i sink
and i find a peace
when I supposed swallow

Then i realize

how sweet is death on the sea

Must follow his trace, and all his wittes dress,
Virtue to love, and vices for to flee;
