A Fishy Tale


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

    I loved the way you opened this poem, there is one small problem though

    Less easier to do

    should either be:

    Less easy to do

    or

    Not as easy to do

    or

    Not easy to do

    whatever tickles your fancy really.
    I also love how youve taken the more fish in the sea cliche and flipped it on its head

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

    Big fish in a big sea
    Some day we all shall be
    For a short span we shall ride above the tide
    Till new fishes come and we go down to eternally bide....

    Very good poem madam and I heartily welcome you to my page too for comments please..... (Report) Reply

    vanessa, i'd 'forgotten' about you, though the name looked very familiar and even the poem looked familiar (but i see no previous comment by me, so i guess i had not read it before....unless you deleted my comment!) . i enjoyed the poem very much. it makes me want a tuna salad sandwich, but it is past my bedtime.
    i just reread it and i especially enjoyed reading (again) these five lines:

    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 //////////////////////////////////////////////thanks for sharing. goes to MyPoemList indeed! :) bri (Report) Reply

    Loved the caption. Not so fishy, methinks.
    But some days you're the only fish
    Swimming in my sea
    And the fervor that you stirred in me
    Will forever be
    So simply put, not fishy at all. A very good poem. (Report) Reply

    Some tales are fishy and it pains to recollect-better forget them to become better individual through karmic resolutions (Report) Reply

    You have handled the concept in a truly imaginative way. Read mine – O Dearest Love –
