Inside me there is an ocean
A solitary island stands permanently
Amidst the vast, far-reaching body

No ship can sail this ocean
The waves are too strong and too many
Intruders would be drowned in the depths of the water

The ocean is my love and you are the island
You stand unmoving within the raging waters
Water that is already so deep

My thoughts of you are the waves
They are countless and appear constantly
To splash onto the shore of my mind

When you touch me, a storm arises
Crashing winds whip the blood through my body
The thunder of my heart is deafening

The storm continues to build until my body is shaken
And in the peace that follows the storm
The waters of my love are deepened by the rain from my tears of joy

Reviewed by Jay Squires 4/11/2003
Whoa, Joyce! I wasn't expecting that. Few people use metaphor so well. It immediately brought to mind some of the metaphysical poetry of John Donne. Be proud... Be always so GOOD.
Reviewed by Lynn Barry 3/20/2003
WOW! Powerfully evocative and yet innocent in its metaphorical nature/lovemaking enfolding...
