Poem: Heart by the Sea

Heart by the Sea

I left my heart by the sea
And there it was
Quickly swept away by
The cool ocean tide
My heart out to sea

Sucked through slithering current
Then tossed about
On rolling, raging waves
Dropping, rising, pounding
Then building up again
My heart went to sea

And then one day I found it again
Washed upon the slick muddy beach
A discarded, barely beating mess
Battered, crushed and gasping for air
My heart returned from the sea

So I nursed it quite fondly
Then carried it home
And kept it safe in jar
For wayfaring no more

Now no more will I leave
My heart by the sea
