Some Free Verse Poetry



Looking down.

Icy depths.

Sharks swimming way below.

My eyes locked on the still waters.

The bottoms of my feet are burned by the bricks below them.

Knees bending down,

Legs one brick apart,

I am ready to take off.

Time freezes as gravity pulls me down,

From my floating position.

My body is encased in the freezing liquid.

I am experiencing satisfaction.

My hair is dripping.

I plunge into the deep,

Swimming forward to the shallows.

I come out of the water,

My knees touch cement.
