running underwater

A Poem By Aalen Fideli // 5/27/2011

Running underwater like a dream while you're awake.

No one tells you how to, but you do it anyway.

all day, all night, its like subaquatic flight. the water's not too cold, and the sun is not too bright.

 

When you're running, Flying, Faking it but making it alright, the flight is as easy as can be,

just start running underwater and come dream along with me.

 

We're running over water, and i finally can see.

that when running underwater try to never fall asleep.

go deep if you dare, hold your breath, conserve your air. i could get eaten by a shark, but right now i do not care.

 

When you're running, Flying, Faking it but making it alright, the flight is as easy as can be,

just start running underwater and come dream along with me.

 

running underwater and it's getting pretty dark.

that shape looks like a dolphin but it's probably a shark.

hark! the light, and it's getting really bright. the shark wants us for dinner but it's not me he'll have to fight.

 

Whether you're running or dying, making it or breaking, it's alright. the flight was as fun as it could be.

When you're running, Flying, Faking it but making it alright, the flight is as easy as can be,

just start running underwater and come dream along with me.

This was lovely! Fresh and summery, adventurous and fun. For some reason I really can't explain, it made me think of Narnia.

Brother: Your character should drive a motorcycle.
Me: He can't. He's in the wilderness.
Brother: Then make it a four-wheel-drive motorcycle!

I like this. It flows well

I like this. It flows well and has hints of humor.

All of your poems have an amazing rhythm that I don't usually see anywhere else.  I like this one especially, the imagery is really cool.
