In the sunlight it flatters to deceive
But don't be fooled by its calm exterior
For beneath the welcoming surface
You will succumb to its true nature
Its lures you into a false sense of security
Its intent is to drag you to its depths
Sap your strength, every ounce of energy
And squeeze from your body every breath
She will let you surface for a breath
Then drag you down again out of reach
Then when she has toyed with you enough
She dumps you lifeless on the beach
I am a fifty something family man with a passion for writing and I draw inspiration from those around me.
