Fish out of Water – Author Adam Levon Brown

I sat and reminisced of times when I wasn’t

in despair

The only consolation I had was my

will and my strength to see me through another dark day

You plucked me from the waters of

agony like a fish from the sea

you gutted my emotional pain on the shores of anguish

and you threw away my melancholic waste like

a true fisherman of love

You put the rest of me on the fire of hope and

set me ablaze with a passion I could not control;

the heat extinguishing any self-doubt that I held onto

The moment you tasted my infatuated flesh, I became you

and you became me

But like a fish out of water, I yearned to be released back

into my wretchedness

I pushed you away like you were a twisted dream

I felt solace with you

But like a true fish, I receded and fought my way back to the waters

 and never again found

true security
