"Curse of the Sea"

Updated on August 23, 2017
Source

This was in response to lilyflys Extemporaneous Project

I said I was FINE,

now leave me alone.

You cant fix me this time,

I have to do it on my own.

If you want to help

just sit in the corner there,

be still and be quiet,

like a maiden fair.

dont speak a word,

just light the CANDLE.

Listen to me as I tell my story,

it may be too hard for you to handle.

As the fire burns and flickers

I will tell you my tale,

a tale of a SEA,

gone dry and stale.

They say its a Curse.

The CURSE of the SEA,

a lovers last cry,

of imprisonment to be free.

I do not recall

the exact words he said,

but something like "To dry waters

all you fools will be lead.

There will be no relief,

until someone loves me.

Till I am free of my bonds

I curse these seas."

This man made quite an IMPRESSION on me,

he was locked up for betraying the queen.

Though he never did her any harm,

but he loved her indeed.

She refused to give up her crown for him,

She chose royalty over love.

So she accused him of treachery

and treated him like a thug.

I tried loving him once,

but how do you love a broken man?

When water is all you want,

from the seas of SAND.

      Nikki aside from Iron Maidens Rhyme of the Ancient Mariner ,I know this song about the sea

      Ohhhhh

      Who lives in a pineapple under the sea

      spongebob squarepants

      Absporbent and yellow and porous is he

      spongebob squarepants

      His nautical nonsense be something you wish

      spongebob squarepants

      So drop on the deck and flop like a fish

      spongebob squarepants

      this may be more popular but yours was better yet both give you a view of "the curse of the sea".

      Sea has been a muse to many. It contains power, shifts with the tide, can give you life, can take it away. Sometimes it holds secrets, other times it gives them up. If the seas dry up, then such a crisis it would be. The you have the sea of sand, desolate. Brilliant!

      well I'm glad I could give you that feeling through my words. The sea is a very beautiful and enticing place, the sea and the ocean. so very mysterious and full of tales. Can you imagine whole seas just drying up like that? it would be a true curse.

      Strong willed women are my curse....and my love...

      I think I need a time out in the corner, a candle in my hand, "a fire burns and flickers" as I listen most intently, but handle I will...a passion completely..

      You speak to my love, "The CURSE of the SEA, a lovers last cry, of imprisonment to be free."

      You speak of a man who impressed upon thee...

      You spoke of a man imprisoned by greed

      You spoke of a man torn completely apart

      You spoke of life as water, and seas of just sand...

      One can't help but just wonder, what mountain of man deserves your love's hand....

      Godspeed my friend...a beautiufl poem!!!

      Much love,

      bb....
