Swallowing The Ocean

Feelings and emotions

Worn on my sleeve

Swallowing the ocean

At times I can’t breathe


Such joy bubbling

From deep inside

Just can’t quell

This rising tide


Yet with longing I suffer

So clearly

Knowing I can offer

You nothing materially


All I have you see

Quite literally

Including my feelings

And heart felt sincerity
