Sea of Tears

SEA OF TEARS

He’s contemplating suicide –
Seaside,
Counting the tides,
Watching lovers in stride,
Thinking of the time
Her eyes met his,
Lost in a kiss
And the erratic wires
That ignited the fire
Throughout
His insides.

Over his shoulder,
He watches a fisherman
Catch a fish.
Then he remembers
The line
He had drafted
To catch his exclusive find
By the mind,
And instantly
A gleam in his eye
Shines
In the darkness
Like a lighthouse
Peering across the
Shoreline.

But now,
He had lost his bait-
Due to his shallowness,
Selfishness,
And miserable fate,
And his hollowness
Was steepening.
Like a disease
It was consuming
His soul
And its pain
Was deepening!

The waves were crashing
With the clenches of his heart
As his guilt was eating him!
All he could think about
Was the delicate fish
Which he had
Foolishly
Let slip,
And how his hook
Had cheated
Him!!
