The Fall of Icarus

I am an Icarus.

I flew too high

I wanted too much

The sun punished me

For my sins


My wings melted

And the sea reached up

With gnashing teeth

Masquerading

As rolling waves

Its hungry tongue

Pretending to be

Swirling currents


The sea swallowed me

Whole

Like a stared, cavernous

Monster.


I now lie in the

Belly of the beast.

Amongst the floatsam

And the forgotten


Remember me.
