There's No Taming The Ocean

People say they want depth,

but do they realize that depth is the ocean 

with all of it’s tides, 

not just the sand on the shore- 

but the chaos caused by sea storms 

and tsunamis. 

Depth is the drowned lungs,

the sunken ship, 

the memorabilia lost beneath the surface. 

The ocean floor - finding very little light. 

Don’t ask for my depth if you expect to take the sea-

and tame it.

-Ani Khēmeia
