Can You Hold An Ocean?


Look into my eyes
But hold her hand
With a laugh and giggle
Moving closer
We're face to face
But to who?
I have you
But can I keep an ocean like you?
Wild and untamed
Fluid and ever-moving
Will you claim another
Or will I stay barely breathing
At your surface?
Sliding gently across the sand
While others hold on and fail
But if she survives
Will I?

    It's a pleasure to read this gem of a piece!
    I have you
    But can I keep an ocean like you?
    Wild and untamed
    Fluid and ever-moving
    Fantastic thought of a bewildered lover, you take the reader with your musings...
    But if she survives
    Will I? ...My God! What a difficult question uttered so easily!
    Well done,10/10 (Report) Reply

poet Ralph Waldo Emerson

Knows he who tills this lonely field
To reap its scanty corn,
What mystic fruit his acres yield
At midnight and at morn?

In the long sunny afternoon,
