HE WENT WITH HER HEART TO THE SEA

The ocean churns,
a rambunctious chop
of the briny deep.
Gwendolyn keeps watch,
waiting for his promise
and a return to her port.
Sailor, a man of the sea –
he had absconded with her heart.
From the day that he sailed
she never failed to search
horizons along the shipping lanes.
Straining her neck, Gwen grows tired.
Mired in an unfulfilled dream,
it seems to secure her soul away
as if buried in a dead man’s chest!
The ocean churns and his return
is a long time coming.
Her patience is going under
for the third time today.
A Great White passes Gwendolyn’s way.
“Don’t fuck with me whale!
Momma’s having a bad day!”
