What İt Means To Love An Ocean?


Real meaning has real feeling,
Says Pain too Sorrow.
“Sisters have you ever frozen”.
Gnawed; the bone, though your skin
Your clothes (have you ever!)
Tasted hunger that hungers after-
Death; that leaves you ravaged.
Adrift - afloat, ahoy a raft of death!
Without the means to, drown.

Real meaning has real feeling,
Says Sorrow too Pain.
So, then lets us charge, you
-With more suffering, eternal...
Let’s put salt on your tables.
And keep your lands lean—
Let’s give you a sea wall, that
Surges with, loathing… but whose faith!
Shall, rise in the ebb, and tide.

Even as life withdraws maws…
On all fours: you will embrace us...
As does a pretty bride! her groom.
Indeed, says Pain too brother Sorrow.
With all her bridal, foam flung!
Like a bouquet over her right or left-
Shoulder she’ll surf to either shore.
To kick start our envious relentless war!
…All over… all over… again, and, again.

So, says Sorrow too Pain
Says Pain too his brother Sorrow.
In their blind bitter rage!
I’m still hungry, I’m still feeling,
Really, really, empty.
“Give me more; give me more, sisters…
Give me more; than I ever had before”.
More lovers than; than the sea…
Have waves to drown me.
