Inside the Sea

Updated on June 25, 2015


My gaze was fixed where the water met the shore...
But I found at heart longed no more...
Time was spent...craving the company of the sea....
When all the while it smiled and cast my reflection back at me...
And what had failed to be seen...the beast that grasped and gnawed the soul so desperately...was nothing more than the fear of being me......
solace was not to be found in the sea...because I am it, and it is me.

      The sea is such an interesting thing, multi faceted to say the least! There is so much beauty and yet so much depth and complexity, even fear ( a healthy fear at time.) I enjoyed reading this, thank you for sharing it.

      Beautiful poem about ocean! Admittedly, some people have same reverence and attraction for deserts.

      Well Rebecca, it was hard to say. It was in between good and bad so it was hard to rate by your standards. I gave it thumbs up and pinned it.
