Sea of Love

I live alone within myself,
like a hut within the woods;
I keep my heart high upon the shelf,
barren of other goods;
I need another's arms to reach for it,
and place it where it belongs.
I need another's touch and smile,
to fill my hut with songs.


  1. I like it a lot. Very simple but meaningful nonetheless.

  2. Hmm. I didn't know you wrote poems. I liked the phrasing of "barren of other goods". But I couldn't help but wonder why this was called Sea of Love? It struck more like something that should be labelled "yearning" or "need" or even "hut in the woods".

  3. @lendmeurear @1001Nights thanks, I did not write it, I'm not the sensitive kind that writes poetry, but I do appreciate nicely arranged words. This poem came from the Movie "Sea of Love".

    In the movie, it was posted in the personals of a newspaper as an ad to catch a serial killer that kept on killing his dates.

  4. I got a kick out of the typical macho reaction - I'm not sensitive! I'm not writing poetry! This was about serial killers! LOL :P
