sea see

There is

this Sea I see

Sea of wisdom

they call it

it hynotises me

I crave it

I undress my foolishness

my insincerity

more of strength

I scrub at my weaknesses

I scratch down my fears

just to dive in to the sea

and ascend to my better self

but then undraped unsealed

comes swirling in

rising the beast

of darkness within

chasing the sea away

scaring me

I sprint gathering my belongings

I dare not abandon them

else the beast inside shall resurrect!

Oh my goodness...I'm not sure how I missed this amazing metaphorical oceanic dance! What a dive! What a soak of surrender! So deep. So blue.
This is really fantastic!
I think line 5 you mean "hypnotizes"

I'm so impressed with this!
"I undress my foolishness, my insincerity" Wow to that line.
"ascend to my better self" amazing imagery

I like what you're getting at here at the end....darkness chasing away the sea of wisdom. Running to get your clothes...fleeing from the beast. Traditionally we think of light chasing away the darkness. But we can allow darkness to rule us. There is a constant battle.
Very deep poem, girl
