Perspective

The ocean howls in terrific anger,

no sight on Earth to match its rage,
The fury fills my line of vision.
It fills me to the brim.
Nothing exists, nothing matters,

save this beautiful tantrum
And yet,
An ignorant desert night,
Lit by a thousand million stars,
Can not hear the ocean's screams.
Instead, it sits,

in perfect
Silence.

Written at midnight with the ocean on my mind. Have you ever been on the beach at night? If you have, just imagine. Somewhere, far away, in the middle of the desert... nobody cares about a stupid beach or a stupid ocean. Perspective.
