Treasure Island

Kayleigh Butler


I am the Ocean


The Isle of Man is where I danced
All shimmering and blue
The animals inside of me
jumped up, went down and swam through
some people even swam in me
It tickled and made me laugh

But now

I'm a green murky colour
It isn't much fun
I'm dark and gloomy and ever so lonely
No-one comes near me
So I don't laugh any more
I am deserted
The animals have gone replaced by litter
I am lifeless
In a deathly silence
I was the ocean
Now I am the dead sea
