Poem 261 – Nevermore Ocean

And I sit beneath the ocean swells of Nevermore’s pitch-black seas
As, far above, the sunlight beams pierce the water,
Seagulls silhouetted, their shadows on the crests
Of the waves that grow ever more distant as the light fades away.
For this is the Nevermore sea, too dark to even dream
Of the sunlit lands that you’ve left above you.
The ocean’s silent, its denizens slip
Ever deeper into its chilly embrace.
Far above the deepest fish,
Monstrous and hidden from all light,
Swim in languid circles within the night-filled sea
But deep below at the bottom of Nevermore,
They’re too far away to see.

Dear readers,

Nevermore sea, to me, is similar to the world painted in Tennyson’s The Kraken – it’s well worth a read, if you have the time.

Kind regards,

The Hapless Neo-Romantic
