Single life

Standing where waves end, still full of pain,
I'm now merely a part of the food chain.

Enter the ocean of the seekers,
Fresh flesh into a darkened world,
Imposingly shallow in the deepness.

Circling and circling, the sharks are wary,
Unable to stop, for death becomes certainty.

I'm merely chum for the predators,
And there’s blood in the water…
From my bleeding heart.

Hmmm .. this was different for you, no? I love it and would like to see you write more on the 'dark side' .. with your talent, you make a dark poem something extra special!
