It knows our fears, tears, secrets and woes.

It knows our pasts, presents, and futures.
It knows our thoughts, feelings, loves, and loss.
It beckons to us sweetly.
It bellows at us in a warlike howl.
It caresses us gently so we won’t feel.
It pulls us under quickly and violently so we won’t hear.
Where do we go?
No one knows.
Except it. It knows.
It loves us.
It hates us.
We need it to survive.
It can kill us.
It keeps us alive.
It ends us.


The author's comments:
It was originally supposed to be the ocean. The way the waves reach out and touch you. They seem to know everything about you. We need water to survive, yet it can kill us by drowning us. After reflecting on this piece I relize; It can be anything to anyone. What is it to you? leave me a comment

The descriptions were so beautiful and enthralling! I love how you leave a sort of mystery about the reader. Really wonderful job, wicked! :)

I love how it's open to interpretation. What exactly is "it" is what I'm thinking right now. I'll be thinking about it for a long time. I'll be sure to let you know what I think it is. Great poem, keep writing.
