Bliss(Blisters) - Poem by Joshua Manis

lost amidst this sea of bliss
the rain sprinkles across these waves
took beyond happiness
into the ocean of distress
had we ever found such joy?
lost within our temperate sanctuary

running past distracted poetry
into the depths of this sea of bliss
blisters digging past my skin
cant you set me free?
free from the pain i harbor
freedom of a love unkept
freedom lost inside our 'bliss'

    Hmzz in that case is it truly bliss? ? Great poem and feeling... what more else can i say.. it was really deep and yet slightly metaphoric... loved it..
