I wrote this and don’t really know what to do with it. In my poetry lately, I have been trying to use different kinds of line breaks and stanza breaks. Not sure what this one is doing here, but I like how it sounds it in my head. It’s a love poem, of course.
When I was a little girl the ocean sang to me with a voice of ambrosia something gold something good i wasn’t sure what it would taste like water fills its container or at least that’s what they told me so I fill a glass of salt water, keep it in my bedroom bring it to my lips in the night when your dreams keep me awake Your voice, the ocean’s voice keeping me whole keeping me sane Being with you was like walking into the ocean, but underwater i could breathe for the first time There’s no one else in the room but i am submerged in you
