it's about death, of course, and the after affects of losing someone you love very much. You feel like the water has just taken a hold of you and swept you away.

Swept away

swept away
by the oceans tide
only in you
would my heart confide
but now you're a dream
that will never come true
my sad heart
is now badly bruised
it took a beating
when you left us all
I'm on my hands and knees
because I can only crawl
weakened greatly
by the misunderstandings
It's hard to believe
that I'm still standing
questions fill my head
death is complicated
I want to cry out loud
my heart is weighted
the water destroys the sand
my castle has gone away
my home is no longer my home
a day is no longer a day
minutes are hours
and hour are years
time passes by
as my memory disappears
I was swept away
by the oceans tide
and nothing matters
when love is denied

  Ouch....those last few words were very piercing to one's soul. When you have love for someone and they don't show it in return, or the crush your feelings its the most difficult feeling in the world. I like the imagery and the feeling that your poem gives as I was reading... Exceptional work
