Peering Into The Depths
15 January, 2005
author: Rebecca Ditch-Hammack (aka Dreamer)


Beneath the surface of the liquid stillness
Is a deeper, darker place
A place where monsters dwell
A place where dreams don't come true
It's hard to see into the depths of me
Harder still to see just beneath the surface

Look closely into the pool
Where the recent drop of a pebble
Ripples the smooth surface
You will see the murky demons
Circling and waiting for the right time
When the frenzy of ugliness can begin

Sometimes I look up from the depths
Seeing through the distortions to the surface
Past the circling monsters
I see the blurred silhouette of who I am
Looking into the depths, searching
Or am I really below searching for the sky

------- Author's Notes -------

Sometimes we are so busy searching for the answers to our darkness we forget we are really looking for the light.
