* an examination of that cliche.

And she will be your Demeter.

She will dive


again and again

to your underworld,

save you from yourself

lead you from the fray

steady your shaking hand,

steer you

with her moral compass.

And she is pure

and true

as long

as the


is on

Exploding a myth! Sometimes the depths are just too deep for the most accomplished swimmer.

excellent...and yes the title is a little long but it caught my attention

i like this, but i wouldn't make the title a question. no need. may even wish to cut it down even further. make it real lean. kind of like william's "Locust tree in flower" just a thought.

Well a point made very simply and well done.
