Mel, I was tickled to see a poem of yours. They always captivate me. You have been such a strong influence in my writing. This is such a beautiful poem. Though afraid to nominate because I am biased towards your work. What the heck....I'm a rebel...nominated.
Kay, you are wonderful and sweet. I feel the same about your work and I think we really do influence each other. I'm so glad you have been visiting the site more frequently. It really does need members like you back around.

I don't know you very well at all so I am not biased and thus, will not vote......
No, in truth, I am out of votes already and if I were not, this would get mine; I'm glad Kay has nominated this beautifully written piece.
Thanks Ben! We should try to get to know each other more. I'm generally the invisible mod on this site but I do like to establish friendships with as many members as possible. Looking forward to commenting on some of your work in the near future.
Another intriguing write from you Mel. I always try to decepher your metaphors but normally I fail miserably haha!! I think this could be about a disruption in your younger years that left you traumatized for a long time. Something that left a void in your life hence your title and, the 'sea' is just now settling...not sure but still a lovely write.
Can you check the word 'slayed' I'm not sure but I think it should be slain?
Hi Hellon, you hit the nail on the head about a disruption. I've changed slayed to slain, I actually had slain at the start but began to question myself after researching on the net. Thanks for pointing it out!
This is another powerful piece from you and can possibly be interpreted in different ways by the many people that read it.
I interpret it that you have had some really rough times throughout your childhood that you are just trying to get over but it's difficult because of the times you have had.
I also interpreted as something happening that stopped you from doing things you wanted.
As I say many interpretations that only you could possibly know the true meaning of.
