18 (who?)
‘Oh, these lapping waves’ she moans
As they slowly rise up to our shoulders
They seem to be crawling up higher
With each passing year that we grow older

At the mercy of the ocean
But all I can feel is her hands on my face
Now even Poseidon himself
Could not unlock such a passionate embrace

‘Oh, these lapping waves’ I groan
They have left our lustful limbs enshrined
Preserving this love that we make
In the seawater’s oceanic brine

At the mercy of the ocean
I caress her body for the secrets she keeps
I’ll find her pearl on the seabed
As I am not afraid at all to swim deep

‘Oh, these lapping waves’ we moan
A blanket of blue in a turbulent sea
I hear her whisper as I tremble
‘My love, please do not fear our destiny’

At the mercy of those calming words
As she quells my smouldering apprehension
Even Neptune lowers his trident
As we gently ripple towards fate's ascension

You are creating so much turmoil in my head, my soul can not say what the difference between lust, desire and love is.
Depending on the circumstances, they can only be separated when a
single night is enough.

a beautiful comment and your thoughts are something i can relate to. It is something i ponder often. What is love, what is lust, what is obsession even.

Thanks for reading my poem and commenting :)

This is beautiful, it flows wonderfully and your wording is magnificent. This screams passion and dramatic flair, and I think that deep down everybody wants the picture that forms in the mind when reading this. Excellent work :)
