This poem is an allusion to unrequited love.

Merciless Waves

by cornycaa

In the torpor of the merciless waves, I was but a senescent rock. I have borne the wrath of tides . When it was pain that kept watch on me , I awakened in me a dream that was wide.

The river was my solace And also,my foe. But what could I do? That was how I was supposed to grow.

The river washed me away to the shore And with it went away, the hopes that I bore. The river was not my friend, I reckon But I had listened to it beckon.

This subject is a trite overworked cliche. But not the way you wrote it. Your use of metaphors was sublimely exquisite. I loved this poem. Great work!!!!!!!!!
