For some reason this is my favorite poem I’ve written in poetry class. Writing about objects and giving them an emotional attachment isn’t the easiest thing.
The reason why i’m sharing this is on my blog is because i’m starting a new blog strictly on poetry. A wide range of poems by my favorite poets and also my own poems.
P.S ( this crap makes my poem look like one big stanza, the original is much nicer.)
The oceans of coffee
Savory sweet black tides
Drowning my restless eyes.
Grasping the sand of rich intake
You lift me up from the depths of the ocean.
Your black drops run through my lungs
Disabling me to breathe
Making it harder for me to leave.
The heat of the blazing sun
The warmth through my body.
Encouraging me to take another dive
Swimming in your savory black tide.
Tasting the bitter sea salt you consume
Splashing across the horizon
I couldn’t get back up.
I wanted to drown
I wanted to go further in
To bigger oceans
There’s no one else in the water
No one to be found
Just me and you
And the harmony of the oceans sounds.
I never wanted to escape your
Savory sweet black tides.
