My eyes are closed as tight can be
How did I get here deep at sea?
Salt from billows on my face
Of any land there is no trace.
I dare not move as to subside
The bilious feeling deep inside
I hear the sounds, the pounding echos
They do no good for my ego.
I cannot tell from ‘oer nor ‘neath
Maybe a cyclops is my defeat?
Or shall I sink ne’er to be found
in willowy seaweed on ocean’s ground?
I sense I am all by myself
I grip the boat; i feel its svelte
And in surrender I open my eyes
And find that you are by my side.
It’s morning and I must arise.
And will I ever tell my dream? Never and don’t you either!
This is a poem using certain words from a list of words. I used sea, salt, billows, cyclopse, willowy, bilious, seaweed, svelte and ego.
