Today I Am the Sea

By Marie Allred - August 18, 2017


Today, I am a stagnant sea,

At face value, no more than an empty pool

Reflecting all those who look into me.

However, there is a hurricane in my heart

Jostling the undertow,

Creatures thrashing below,

unwilling to take part

In this massacre,

Bloodshed underneath the water,

But the surface unchanging.

This is the calm before the storm.
