The Ocean


Published: November 2014

The waves trickle along my toes.
The soft ocean sprays across my nose.
The sand was compliant under my feet,
Exactly where the ocean and it decide to meet.

The water rose and enveloped around my shin.
The salt water numbing against the skin.
A shell drifted, caught in the tide,
A tiny crab adrift inside.

The water drifted up to my hips,
A million kisses from the ocean's lips.
A gentle caress from the deep blue,
Though it would've been better if it was from you...

The water enveloped around my waist.
A thousand tiny fingers around me laced.
The horizon calls, it beckons me
Out towards it, across the sea.

This poem is really great, especially for a school project. We're meant to memorize a poem with ten or more lines, and this one is a perfect length for me.

Personally, I love the ocean too, and this poem really described it really well. Although there's one thing...

You said this could be taken a few different ways, and after I read that, I thought of one way....Could she be going out to suicide? I'm sorry, but I just thought it might be that, because of the line "Though it would've been better if it was from you". Like maybe she had been heartbroken by some guy and was going to drown herself to commit suicide? I'm sorry if this isn't it, it's just what I thought. But anyways, this is an amazing poem and thanks for making it!!!
