"

Even though you're hours upon 
hours away...
You make me feel like a 
whirlpool being fueled by the 
rain... 

Sucking up every word and 
hmmm that you breathe...

Constantly drowning all of the 
doubts that tread in my seas...

That float above the roaring of 
emotions within....

The eye of my heart where 
there's love that you've 
given....

There's strength in my pull and 
weakness in my control...

The stories of sailors that would 
have been left untold...

But along with the words and 
the feelings that swam...

I sucked it all in and unwillingly 
slammed...

Your thoughts and 
emotions into the ships that to 
the left, failed to hurl...

So the constant pulling of my 
whirls, swirls, and watery 
curls...

Brought you in faster... But 
there's none of your laughter... 
You're still being pulled in 
deeper hoping for no disaster...

Coming into a whirlpool in the 
middle of the sea..

Seeing it's a place most 
wouldn't actually want to be...

You wait and try to wield the 
wheel willingly to the right... 

Knowing that you're sailing in 
with the sturdiness of a 
knight...

But you're still trying to see 
what exactly you're doing...

While feeding my pool with 
your many anxious 
uncertainties...

Along with your secrets and 
desires as well as new 
beginnings....

No longer catching fish but 
these heavily unapproachable 
feelings...

All the while..
Not even knowing... 

Whether the outcome is bound 
to be life or death...

Yet you're still holding on while 
dodging loose regrets...

Trying to stay on your deck in 
my being...

The winds still pushing yet 
you're not even fleeing....

I want the winds to ease and 
the rain to cease....

The clouds to part and to 
restore calming in my seas...

With you in your ship as safe as 
can be...

Catching as much fish as you 
could possibly...

Where the sun's warmth is 
barely an itchin'... 

and the on your skin the sea 
breeze is kissin'...

With a smile on your face and 
no tears from your eyes...

As my waves repay you with a 
push towards the skies...

Don't be afraid when the waves 
are still...

That doesn't mean there's no 
life underneath to be called 
real...

It's just that the wind is 
working up some courage...

To fly above the water that 
needs to be encouraged...

To keep your ship floating with 
you singing your song...

Giving me the honor to help 
move you along...

To wherever it is that you want 
to go...

In my seas you may not stay... 
Just be sure to leave the boat...

Because I can never... At 
anytime... get up and walk 
away...

For I am the lingering ocean.. 
therefore I'll continue to sway...

Even if you leave your ship and 
walk amongst the land...

You can always get back in the 
boat that you left in the sand...

Sunset or sunrise...

I'll watch for you sailing 
towards the unreachable 
skies...

With my glistening waves that 
WILL rise.. again...

I'll be sure to sail you all the 
way to your destination...
Sail on these loose waters baby...
Don't be afraid.

Anytime sir
This poem was a little long winded, I believe you could have achieved a good poem in slightly fewer lines.
That's just my opinion though. The imagery was really well done.
The metaphor through out the poem almost writes itself.
