nautical is the depth of
my affections and
there are mountains under the surface if
you’d care to
look,
and I’ll bring a flashlight for the black-
est and deep-
est parts
(because I know even I
get scared),
and if you doubt your ability to swim
up again, I’ll help you
breathe – air
isn’t the only thing that sus-
tains us, but
love

"Have you ever looked fear in the face and said, 'I just don't care.'?"

I've played with this theme before, of being so much deeper and thoughtful than the world knows. This is so innocently, beautifully, uniquely written... All I can say is, when you meet your true love, share this with them. :)

Favorite Quote:
First dentistry was painless.
Then bicycles were chainless,
Carriages were horseless,
And many laws enforceless.

Next cookery was fireless,
Telegraphy was wireless,
Cigars were nicotineless,
And coffee caffeineless.

Soon oranges were seedless,
The putting green was weedless,
The college boy was hatless,
The proper diet fatless.

New motor roads are dustless,
The latest steel is rustless,
Our tennis courts are sodless,
Our new religion — godless.

I like how they added a "i can relate" tab that i can vote with, because that's exactly how i feel when i read this.

Your poems seem to have a humble amount of uniqueness, and the structure is wonderful (though I wish I could understand the breaking of sus-tains). You always seem to come up with such fresh metaphors.. just beautiful!
