Crossing the Boundary of Darkness

What if we can explore the deep sea and its wonderful life?

Illusory manifestations

In the forefront of my mind

Sounds echoing in a distance

I hear the abyss calling me

Drifting in nothingness

The light projecting the sky’s likeness


I’m slipping further through

The boundary of light and darkness

I slowly see my body swallowed in it

No longer visible

Forever seems divisible

From my body


Darkness is climbing up to meet me

With loneliness it greets me

Isolating and dreary

The chaos is deafening…

The last light is glistening…

Signalling my surrender


The veil of darkness seems heavy

Shrouding everything within

Loneliness levied against all beings

So close, yet so far

Livelihood so bizarre

Cut-off from all around

Blackness is abound

A different world hidden

A world with no sun light

Where life thrives in-spite

Of immense pressure

From above, below, and all sides in tow

The magnificence of life never ceases to amaze

But life tends to act up and glaze

Our vision… with problems so slight

When compared to the world

But to us seem like a plight

When faced with them we curl


The metal is creaking and water flowing in

I never wanted to forfeit my life in this tin

Scrambling with tools and button pressing

I was overtaken by my gaze that I’d forgotten

On the ocean I’m intruding and I’m about to be trodden

With massive pressure and weight its impressing

Upon my sub, the true power of nature

Reminding me that this world is beyond my reach for now

An imposter in an alien world

Of wonderful and dark existence
