For Love and Oceans

Wondrous
wafture luring
ravenous wretches in.
Inviting emerald pinions
lost souls.

Teasing
torrents beckon.
Heartfelt affections swell.
Succumbing to fateful baiting,
blinded.

Buoyant
abysmal bliss,
cradles jaded dreamers.
Lofty gulls cry a lullaby,
skyward.

Surging
seascape thunders,
plundering misplaced trust.
Consuming yearning burns below
bruised skies.

Shipwrecked
shoreline corpses,
sea’s regurgitation.
Casualties of love and ocean;
remains.
