Ocean’s Net

Posted on

I am caught in a net,

Wound deeply within twine.

Squirming, spinning, squashed.

I cannot break free,

I am drowning,

Trapped beneath the surface.

I can’t get a grip,

The rope is slick with oil,

I ask, I beg, I plead.

To no avail.

I am lost,

Another fish,

In a broken sea.
