Like the Ocean

Updated on February 24, 2017

You’re either high or you are low

You either love her or you don’t

Like the tide along the shore you wanted more but lost them both

You’re neither water nor the boat

You never sink but never float

Like the waves that pull the sand you took her hand and held her close

You’re neither land nor are you sky

You neither walk nor do you fly

But like the waves that ebb and flow you let her go and said goodbye

      Thank you for the advice! I haven't done much reading among other hubs but it occurs to me now that that would probably be the best way to get more done around here haha ;)

      Bella, I enjoy poetry with contradictions like this. Welcome to HubPages, I think you will do well here. If you want to build up followers you need to read other people's hubs and comment. If you like their writing, follow them and they will usually do the same for you. You are a promising poet.
