My Heart - Poem by Adalie Hettie

It must be there,
Somewhere in the sand.
A simple wooden box
With a little silver key.

I can no longer find it -
A way to make a connection.
What my eyes once beheld,
My mind could not conceive,

But beneath my feet and
Along the rocky land,
I will find the cold dark sea.
Just watch the waves-

How high they are
And how they are overzealous
In attempt to swallow me.
So, I know that’s where I’ll find you-

Lying underneath the deep blue waters.
The only still life on the deserted floor.
I’ll leave everything behind
And in death I’ll love you forever more.

    Your wording 'Lying underneath-, ' 'I'll leave-, ' 'and in death-, ' all so well played. Very intense and controlled. Good imagery with the power to pull me in very quickly.

    thanks for sharing
