Singing Brass Fish
The blue body of water was cold, and
Even though the sun burned my shoulders,
The fresh liquid made me shiver. So, I moved
My legs and arms to feel warmer.
The waves came one after another, with a
Rhythm I couldn’t decipher. Some times
Faster, and others slower. I threw myself under
Them, and enjoyed the white bubbles over me.
As time passed by, it was more difficult
To come back out, and they continued
Coming, sooner each time. It was then,
When one of them wrapped me like a blanket.
It carried me, as if it didn’t want to let go,
And breathing became harder. All I could
See were two fish, with brass heads,
Swimming towards me.
The fish were surrounded by a
Bright light, and they smiled at me
As if they were saying it was okay
To go with them, towards their gleam.
My arms and legs felt heavier, and the brass
Fish were closer, blinding me with their
Brightness. Until someone pull my arm, and the
Fish disappeared. The sun, still there, felt warm again.
