Below the Surface

Below the surface is a whole new world
Of magic and delight to be unfurled

Below the surface, is a wealth of treasure
Of exquisite beauty that’s without measure

Below the surface of my deep blue sea
Is the secret storehouse of fantasy

Below the surface is where you’ll find
The treasures of my heart and mind

Below the surface at depths extreme
Is where you’ll find that buried dream

Below the surface, is where I come alive
In my depths, I know, you desire to dive

Below the surface, is where I keep my soul
If you go deep enough, I’ll make you whole

Below the surface, is where magic lies
Start the descent there now through my eyes

Below the surface, I’m waiting for you
Come down, my love, swim in love so true

Below the surface, vibrant you will feel
That surreal world, for you I’ll make real 

Below the surface, you will beg to stay…
In my ocean depth, passion drenched each day!

    Our outside image is only a shell covering up what we truly are! Though verging on repetitive this is still a beautiful piece of poetry. I thought the last couplet was a real nice way to tie it all up... wouldn't it be great if everyday was filled with passion?

    I was singing this one by the end Eileen, very musical, and very good. You should think about entering the contests, Take care, Regards Richard

    Thanks for the advice, Mr Seal. At the moment, I'm done with contests and poetry. Perhaps in the near future.

    Very enjoyable and thought provoking. Wouldn't it be nice in general conversation with people to know what's in their mind.

    Not always! Sometimes I'm grateful that people CAN'T see what's on my mind...but only the privileged few can! :) Thanks for the post!

    Oh Donna....life would be so much easier if I weren't such a hopeless romantic! But...this is the character I have! :) I can't help but write what is in my heart! Hugs!
