Depths of Despair

by Jasmyne LaBeau

Something lurks beneath the water

Solemn, quiet, but furious

Rippling across her eyes

A familiar reflection in the gaze

Something lies beneath the water

Bedding into her ribs

Haunting whispers asleep against the moss

Something evades beneath the water

Depths of despair a woman can bear

Love is now only a ghost beneath the marsh


Jasmyne Labeau is a twenty-three year old poet based out of Michigan. She enjoys creating written pieces that are full of the deepest emotions such as love, heartbreak, mystery, grief or nostalgia. When she is not creating, you can find her canoeing on the river, adventuring in the woods, reading fantasy novels, or spending time with her loved ones.
