Heart of the Sea

The heart of the sea shall break evermore,
she rushes to thee along the craggy shore.
A blue so deep, shimmering in an undertow,
Rest in peace she taunts to shipwrecks below.

How cold is she, a heart that feels no pain,
Mighty storms bow to her dictatorial reign.
A waxen moon, her godsend humble guide,
Permeating quicksilver across vast riptide.

Led by a siren the pull so ebbing strong,
Restlessly wandering to catch an illusive song.
Soft silt brushes against her aquatic skin,
Rapturously she awaits  phasing to begin.

Within the cold waters is a deep despair
On the briny zephyr a warning to beware
Cast not aspersions to apathetic hearted,
For she hoards a deadmen's chest of fools departed.

    Hi again Poetess Darkly, I portrayed the sea as the great ancestral mother with a positive image. Perhaps, this is what attracted the views it has received so far. I noticed your poem and several of the others that placed presented a dark or negative image of the sea. My poem got favourable ratings in two other contests. I want to thank you once again for sponsoring the "Heart of the Sea" contest which motivated me to produce one of my best poems. Have a nice day!
