A sparkling plane of cosmic size
Glistening waves that incessantly mesmerize
Emrald green, glittering turquoise
Graceful, smooth, full of poise.
Endearing, tugging at the eyes,
Playing the Siren, pulling us inside
A writhing monster, having enough,
Thirsting for more,
A power hidden from our eyes
By delicate waves and crafty lies.
So huge, so massive, ginormous size
Unable to fathom,
Dragging large ships to their knees,
Playing a pirate to pirates
Hiding and burying everything beneath.
And when the day is sunny
And the birds are warbling merry
And you feel safe and sound
One day, this colossal being will pounce
No swords, no guns, you can’t run forever
There will come a time to submit yourself to the terror.
