A Fishy Tale - Poem by Vanessa Hughes

I saw you twice the other day
Stirring passion anew
It's easy saying just move on
Less easier to do

Ive always said to others
There's plenty more fish in the sea
But some days it makes no difference
How many fish there be

On the face of it, a small fish
But you took over my whole sea
Never before had I gone fishing
It was all so new to me

You were someone that I longed for
I'd never felt like that before
Some months on, now I'm seeing
The sea has fish once more

But some days you're the only fish
Swimming in my sea
And the fervor that you stirred in me
Will forever be

    Indecisive minds, swing and sway this way that way without being able to settle down. Such minds have many things, fishy or otherwise, to say. Its nicely said and wonderfully presented. Congrats for being the member's PoD. (Report) Reply

    Congratulations, Vanessa! Poem of the day for you!
    My favorite verse is this one:
    I've always said to others
    There's plenty more fish in the sea
    But some days it makes no difference
    How many fish there be
