You Love Like The Ocean

You Love Like The Ocean

A Poem by Tai Ryens

The waves beat down on the shore
wave after wave
while the storm raged on,
roared in its language of
thunder and ice,
swore it would bring upon land
the hammer of a god
and tear it apart
piece by piece,
raged and raged and raged
until the day when
the weight of the world lifted
and the storm calmed down
into but a breeze
that kissed the shore gently
in waves of apology.


I wonder
why the shore doesn’t tremble
like I do,
or if compliance
comes with the old age
of the land and the sea.

Thanks for reading.
A amazing poem. I liked how you compared the sea to life and emotion.
"I wonder
why the shore doesn’t tremble
like I do,"
I liked the above question. Something are left to the unknown and possibilities. Thank you for sharing the excellent poetry.

if felt like a one-sided love affair, or it is just me thinking that whenever you compare your love to the ocean it will be hard, its has its moods depending on the weather & seasons that will pass... it suddenly rages at you when a storm has come, its says apologies when its calm... still you understand, still you love the ocean anyways, it only has its moments then it gets back... love is like how we understand each other, how we love the flaws they have or we have... its just the way it is... its really beautiful work my friend...

I love this poem! It has a lot of meaning behind it. I still haven't fully understood everything that could be gotten out of it. I do know that love is not found on top of the ocean. Any storms that may brew above does not show the sea bed underneath. The shore, in my mind, is there for support. Its the outlet for the stress, emotions, and storms that the other is going through. It connects with the sea bed, the innermost part of the heart of the other loved. Thanks! for this poem. I really enjoyed it!
