Surrounded By Land, Poetry by Bernadette Perez

Genre: Life, Nature

Surrounded By Land

Soft pillow’s do not soften the blow to thy head

Hard rocks below my feet are forced to bleed
My mind aches with thought
Pain fiercely repeats again and again
Time slowly eats away
Throbbing ached vessels relax
Blisters begin to form
I soon go mad
Numb to my surroundings
I lose interest
I walk pass the porch
Through the trees
In the distant a lake
A full body of water
Wading is effortless
Yearning to be free
Floating cascading upon the ripples
I travel past the reef
Exposed to all the elements
I drift to the edge
Quietly I disappear
Solemnly I rest
