Poem

The Flood

The night is dark
so dark outside
my heart is bursting with song
I see the world
in my minds eye
the world is waiting.
So long, old life,
the world is waiting so long.

The wind is fierce
so fierce, it moans
my heart is burning with pain
I see the world
in my minds eye
the world is covered.
So long, old life,
the world is covered in rain.

The beach is smooth
so smooth it shines
my heart is peaceful and still
I see the world
in my minds eye
the world is empty.
So long, old life,
the world is waiting to fill.

I really like this one! The rhymes are smooth and subtle enough that I didn't notice them right away except as a good flavor rolling off my tongue. I always read poetry almost out loud, under my breath. :) I'm not sure what the poem is about, but it seems both yearning and hopeful. I sometimes try to imagine what you were thinking when you write what you do. I'm especially curious about this one... :)

Thanks! :D and oh, you didn't get it. I wondered if you would. It started out as maybe a poem about new opportunities, the world... and it turned into a poem about The Flood from the bible. Quite a change! That's okay if people don't get it though, it'll make them think. :P
