The Ocean (wrote this 4 years ago after I broke up) in response to Jenny B's message to a stranger

Love is like an Ocean
at first it seems harmless
but the deeper you go the rougher it gets.

Some take off and sail into the sun
some play around and have a lil fun
Some go off and get swolled whole
Some are just beginning, what they do not know

I’ve took off from that sandy beach
just beyond a viewer’s reach
I tryed to stay on that rough hard path
but couldn’t handle the currents furious rath
I drifted back… so steady and slow
washed all out and spirits running low
keep your head up boy, is what they would say
I lied to them all and said I was ok

I dared back out, though said I would not
and a storm of emotion is all it brought
I floated out so lost and so far
and in the calm, she was my northen star
The wind came in and rocked my sail
waves crashed over and I nearly fell
and when the clouds became to overwhelming to see
I thought this ocean would turn I into history

My boat came back all cracked and broken
I told the tell of which now is being spoken
it anchors on the dock of memory bay
haunted by thoughts of ol’ yesterday
Sails took down she’ll never go again
for the ocean is a battle…. I’ll never win.
