↠The Old Man And The Sea

50 11 5

Fell in love with an old man

Who talked all about being in love with the sea.


Staved off my feelings for him

Until I could clearly see. My eyes trailed off to the sea 


He faced. Deepwater, undulate.

Not a fan of sea monsters, yet as they pass my feet 


I can't help staring in amaze.

Gorgeous tortoises, stunning starfishes. I repeat what


I said. Not a fan. Not a foe either.

The old man stretches his hands, scooping them in his 


Arms. Turns around, smiling 

At me, disappearing with the rogue wave.
