Searching for the Sea

Searching for the Sea

A Poem by Walczak
"

A poem.

"

Where goes the green grass plain,

that place where I once sought shelter from the rain,

I tremble to think that her familiarity evades me,

trouble and doubt do so surround thee.

Since a mirror I am no longer,

but even alone, her heart yet grows stronger.

Oh plains of sand and fire, of blood and ash,

Believe me when I say; “I try not to be rash”.

For in the sea I have found another

who once a friend is now a lover.

So if the sea wished it were so

out into that deep ocean blue, I would row,

because in that water there is a light

one for which I would swim out, on any cold winter’s night.

I liked this poem. It's like the reaction piece to "there are other fish in the sea." I also liked how you cleverly rhymed here. Some of the lines look and sound almost effortless. I think the best part in your poem was "for in the sea..." and so on. I see the light out in the water as a symbol for hope, and that things get better. Good job! :)

Omg you are such a good poet! I've only read two of your poems so far, but it is obvious that you have a gift!
