Lost At Sea

Lost At Sea

A Poem by mae23

Your love is like an ocean.

I am a leaf dancing on the waves.
And though I am lost at sea,
I need not be saved. 

In deep, dark blue water,
You have hidden your secrets away.
But since I cannot swim that deep,
On the surface, I am forced to stay.

Your love is like an ocean.
I am a leaf dancing on the waves.
And though I am lost at sea,
I need not be saved. 

Strong are your currents.
They pull me left and right. 
And because I know their strength,
I never try to fight. 

Your love is like an ocean.
I am a leaf dancing on the waves.
And though I am lost at sea,
I need not be saved.

I like the way your message reminds me of how it feels to be swimming in the ocean waves, being pulled & pushed, but not minding that & surrendering to the natural forces. This is a great analogy for love! (((HUGS)))

An entire smattering of personal feelings painfully felt over this... Love and the ocean... Why do those two things always seem to go so well hand in hand... Strongly penned...

A wave is an oscillation accompanied by a transfer of energy that travels through a medium – just like this breathtakingly penned write! Great imagery and creativity …

Thank you so much!
This is so blissful despite the churning of the seas around you. Surely you are speaking of the strong currents of love. That you want to be swept up in them and therefore will never try to fight.

Yes, perfectly put. Glad you enjoyed!
Your words are lovely. I find much truth in your description of love and its strength. When we are secure in that which we feel, we do not fight against where it takes us. Simply lovely!
