Abyss - Poem by Baby Blue

You said you chose the girl you liked,
And that all the other girls don’t matter
To these words my heart sinks deep;
Falling into the ocean’s darkest abyss.

You are the unyielding under toe
That has grasped my heart
You are the turbulent waves
That have capsized my soul’s vessel.

This feeling must last,
It must go on and never relinquish:
So pull me down with you.
Take me to your dark abyss.

    Beautiful...I love the imagery of the sea, it's so evocative and rich and inherently mysterious because of its unseen qualities. I guess it's the sense of depth that speaks so directly to the imaginative depth of the soul, the place another can take you to when that certain level of contact is made which defeats one's sense of aloneness and you experience unity, if only for a moment...that's how I read your poem.
