Rough Waters

by Star   Jun 29, 2020


If you’re the
dark
deep
ocean,
then
I’m not scared
to settle
in your
lowest depths.
I’ll be
patiently
waiting
for the
light
from
your
surface
to shine
on
us.

    If anyone ever asks why form is so important in poetry, show them this. Such a simple, evocative poem elongated and stretched with great, perhaps purposeful use of sibilance. There's a romantic calmness in this poem, which is given a boost by how your carefully chosen words leak down the page. Well written :)
