The Ocean Calls My Name by Kim Payne

The tide comes in
And I jump feet first
Heart first
Into the watery shelter
Unaware of the jellyfish and sharks
That lie in wait
I swim, mostly doggy paddle,
With no heed or recollection
Of the bruises, open wounds,
and scars from my last leap

Kim Payne is a lover of dreams, the color red, and mochas. Her work has been published in Twisted Sister Lit Mag and MadSwirl.
