The sunlight plays on the waves overhead
and reaches me in fractured rays.
It is a warm light,
in this cold, dark place.
It is a welcoming light,
in this frightening, foreboding place.
It is a waning light
as I sink deeper, further from it’s hope.
The sun’s rays no longer reach me
As I drift among the rays of the ocean floor.
I am scared.
I am new here.
