Anna Schoenbach


“You are safe.” She whispers.
Safe… Safe…
On the ebb and flow of the waves.
Tumbling over itself, the water is the image
Of play amidst dark salt.
Too far, too far,
She envelops, she holds.
“You are safe” she whispers,
As light and air are lost.



Anna Schoenbach is a DC-based writer that usually writes lighter fare. Published in the food-romance anthology “Way to my heart” and the emotionally intense “Primal Elements” anthology by Our Write Side, she has a few bright, colorful poems under her belt. Right now, however, she is bringing you some of the darker things that lurk in her mind, the ones she might not read to her wonderful parents over dinner. She hopes you enjoy them.
