Sea Of Love

Poem by Meredith Fahey

Tides of this lust
Sent crashing into bodies
Into pools of sex
Animals, demons, angels, fish
Touching, kissing
Ebbing with breaths born of
Sea winds catching hair, mussing it
Fussing with it, Still we don’t care
Rocking with the motion of the ocean
You are a boat in the sea of me
Swirling, drowning
Tasting the salty sweetness of stormy nights
Fog ridden dreams of eyes and rain
And the whipping ropes of your sinewy muscles
Pressing me up against your highest decks
We are under and over
And it is all around us
Quenching our thirsts
Driving us mad, We are not merpeople
We are humans
Shush now, eyes flutter
Sand settles
Stars reflecting on the quiet now
Fingers trailing in the wake
The ocean is calm
My soul is open
Torn asunder and blinking
Under the blanket of infinity
We are cozy, spent in this sea bed

    Don't worry, Meredith, it's a good poem. Some people just cannot stand the thought that there are talented people out there. Interesting that your poem should trigger a laughing spell, don't tell your mental health advisor Reynolds. It's a sign.
    Did you read my 'bad ' poem along similar lines, only much longer. I used salty sweetness as well. And other things.(Report)Reply
