The Poet and the Sea

The Poet and the Sea

A Poem by Anarda Nashai
"

Here's a another poem I wrote in high school. Surprisingly, it had NOTHING to do with romance when I wrote it! I hope you enjoy it.

"

instantly, the tide washes me in

after being swept away

in yet another wave of your

salty, whirling mayhem

before I can breathe

lift my head from the sand

i see your wave at my feet again

i pound my closed fist in the wetness

"not again!"

but still

i welcome the unpredictable routine

even as i'm tired i know

that this feeling is only pain

and this pain never leaves me

...has not left me

nor ever will

but i've stayed, and i'll stay

...I say

hoping that your tide will wash me in

a little easier than the last

This is such a pretty poem,
really delicate and ornate..
Like if it was possible,
I would place every word on my mantlepiece,
and make sure no one touches or moves them..
they're like precious objects.
Great write (:

Its such a multi-dimensional poem. Great imagery and i like the subtle anger while still having a soft quality.
great job.

Very nice! There is a little sadness and a question mark as regard as the outcome ... I love the sound of the waves I hear when I read this poem. Thank you for sharing!

Salam to you (peace to you)

This is the first piece that I have read by you and it was very mellow with laces of bitterness, at least that is how I felt when I read it. Welcome to the cafe and enjoy! Cheers, lea

Love this. I have such a soft spot for ocean metaphor! Loved the beginning of it
instantly,

after being swept away
in yet another wave of your
salty, whirling mayhem
before I can breathe ----- really like these lines. Although you didn't write this about romance.. gosh it sure seems like it. or maybe perhaps it just reminds me of trying relationships.. not necessarily romantic ones.


lift my head from the sand
i see your wave at my feet again
i pound my closed fist in the wetness
"not again!" --- i really liked how you were adamant about the tides and yet still its something of comfort

but still
i welcome the unpredictable routine --- i think a lot of us do and we also hope that the bad waves that sweep over our lives wont be as bad...or they'll subside and not wreck us as much as they could.

I really enjoyed this piece. Nice job.

..I dont think it has anything to do with romance either..Or I might just be reading the negative side it gives off... I more or less believe that it is about pain..and..It is unpredictable when the pain decides to resurface, but when it does, you accept it and let it wash over you...But that is just what I think LOL.

I like this poem it is really good. Great job! ^__^

what do you mean this has nothing to do with romance?? This has EVERYTHING to do with romance! I love it. Reminds me of a friend and a situation she's in.
