Uncharted Waters

Uncharted Waters

Wading in your shallow
I see clearly what is there
as I sidestep small pebbles
without surprise 
Inviting, gentle and warm
Safe
 
It is when I venture into the deep
A pool of uncharted waters
I find myself in danger
Below the surface in the blackness
riptides and dangerous currents 
pull me in opposing directions
 
Confusing and taking breath
I hit rocks with flailing legs
Left bloodied and bruised
Out of my depth
I cannot survive the unknown
and your tide consumes me
