This was the day for which she'd always dreamed -
The S.S. Elementic, set to sail!
The sparkling water tossed and rolled and gleamed
As did the fin of water on her tail.

Suddenly, with one enormous scrape,
The ship submitted to the shining depths.
A mere word raced through Ceto's mind: "Escape!"
As she watched in terror drowners at their deaths.

Desperately she struggled to evade;
Shattered glass and blood was all she knew.
Putting on a dogged masquerade,
With one strong lunge of strong hind legs, she flew.

Pain and horror lapped at her false nerve
As slapping ocean drowned out all the din.
Gathering herself and summoning her verve,
She welcomed lapping water at her skin.

For almost an eternity she swam,
Thrashing, treading, gulping fleeting air,
'Till finally, a great mind-jostling slam
Told her she was home despite her dare.

It's been almost 101 years since the Elementic sank after a huge collision with iceberg. Re-living this moment, what would you pet be doing at the time it sank?

Task submission for #Elementiiae! I realized today that April is almost over and I hadn't finished my second task submission for the month of April yet. We've been working on sonnets in English and so I thought that writing a poem would exercise my creative juices and help me practice / study for school at the same time! |D

This was actually intended to be a Shakespearean sonnet, but I realized it would kind of be impossible to attempt writing something like this in only 14 lines, so I extended it by 8 lines and got a 22 line poem that according to wikianswers is not considered a sonnet at all. :dummy:

This was really fun and tiring, but I hope you like it! ;V;
