On the Ocean Waves

On the ocean waves lies trickery A vast emptiness of seething trails Silently it forms destructive forces Desperately trimming ideals away Shores teams with ugly sighs Badgered by waters great strength Singing the song of malevolent Digesting years worth of rock Creating distrust from seas core Which dissolves, crumbles itself down Seemingly ocean water shines Warmth gleaning from above However depths carry frigid waters Keeps oceans from becoming pleasant Allowing waters tearful deploy Of its hollow worlds demise The trickery wallows within its flow An ocean’s despised occurrence

    stay away from the water deep, our great white shark thinks i'm nice n sweet, the terror of the deep n wide, perhaps relate to suicide, on the west coast the widows weep, around ol Perth swift death does sweep, to just be bit in halves, by a monster shark that starves, great monster of the deep... re: 'On the Ocean Waves' Russell Sivey Don
