The sea waves fascinate me...

To the Sea Waves

When the waves come and beat about
the rocks on the sea-shore,
They stir something in my heart;
Touch somewhere in my soul:
Turbulence rises deep in my core
Like the rising and dipping of the waves on the shore.

When they pound about the rocks
Like a lover would beat his head against the wall
In sheer frustration of unreciprocated love
It troubles my soul,
and I am reminded of you some how...

When the sheer passion of the waves
Breaks the rocks, and makes holes in it
At places smoothens it to a silky sheen
I wonder what power of love can do...

So, beat waves, beat about the rocks!
Beat till you make the hard rock comply,
And yield to your perseverance...

Emotion, passion and the sea are intrinsicly linked, but there are human passions at work here :)

Very effective similes here!

We have a place here, there is a rock where it called ships to its doom - I loved this, the sea, is the epitome of emotion because of its capricious nature x
