This is a poem about the love between two people who could never be together.

You were my ocean

And I was your boat.

You showed me the world

And I kept you afloat.

You could get angry

And tip me under.

I could be crazy

And rumble like thunder.

But I was your boat

And you were my ocean.

I kept you sane

And you held my emotion.

Without an ocean

What is a sailor?

Trapped alone

I am such a failure.
