Just an Abyss

Exponential expanses,
sickening depths-
on the ocean waves-
you say to see.
Glories and beauties,
immaculate sets-
rises also-
on the ocean waves.
Steadfast blue,
crashes of white,
ashore- not walls-
on the ocean waves.
Constant pounding,
endless scraping,
frivolity and pure wonder,
on the ocean waves.
Never a break.

    So people can grasp the sort of thoght processes that go with my style of poetry because I write for others to understand and make their own meaning but I believe some are way out of the ballpark.

    First part: The mind is like the ocean. It is capable of seeing everything from a physical state to a deep mental state. Everything you perceive is up to how your mind allows you to see it. Second part: Everyone has their own sense of beauty and glory. No two peoples are the sames, like how no two waves are the same. Third part: The mind is capable of feeling everything, such as calm emotions (steadfast blue) or high emotions (crashes of white), the mind can learn/adapt constantly, it can not be contained. Fourth part: Constant pounding is like the pounding of nerves in someones head when thinking. Minds are interesting, so full of wonder, and each unique, like the waves. Fifth part: The mind never stops thinking and is constantly active.

    First part, the world is like a big deep ocean, never ending and people yearn to seek meaning and reason. Second part, the world has beauty and glory that are both highs and lows, very much like the ocean waves. Third part, no one can contain the world (the wall), but can only be a part of iit (the shore). Fourth part, the world is a chaotic place but also filled with great wonder. Fifth part, the world is constantly moving/changing, it will never cease to amaze.
