swimming in the dark


A deep dark black

Highlighted only by each being

Which appear before my eyes

As simultaneous in my mind

Fish in neon green orange pink

Another submarine ridge

Eyes guided by only the neon images

One of each I must find

As though my dream is inside

A video game

Although no points bubble up to the surface

Just ridges and items I must find

As they each illuminate themselves

Somehow I know I have only 3 left

Before I can swim home

Which is also beneath

The ripples and waves

And yet I cannot get there

I awake before reaching my goal.
