The Other Side

The water slowly rises

I hear the trickle

My clothing is too heavy

Pockets full of dimes and nickels

I guess this is it

I am trying not to panic

Talking to myself

Thankful for the habit

My mind wonders

To another place

Taking me from here

We travel through space

Toward a brand new light

Like I’ve never seen

It seems to breathe

Like a living thing

I have no fear

But I do not know

What awaits

I feel safe and secure

Though my life

Is at stake

The water rises

Up and up

To my ears

Keeping my nose up

As my heart beats

In fear

Quickly I go back

To the portal of my mind

Back to the place

Which will soon be mine

I excel through the portal

In a vacuum

Pulling me in fast

Creating a sonic boom

It is rather fun

Now I circle to land

The sky here is orange

And black is the sand

We land on a beach

The tide rushes in

I struggle to breathe

Jerking me back

My death is conceived

I am pulled

Back to this land

I now call home

A wondrous place

I am free to roam

Happy I am

Though I have died

 My life reborn

I now walk

The other side

I find myself "Dancing With Cancer", problem is...I can't dance. I stumble, bumble, and get pulled along. To keep my sanity, (humor me), I write short stories, a journal, musings and poetry....just about anything goes.
