Beneath the seas
No loneliness is known
Rain never falls Seldom a cloudy day.
I was diving for perils far off the coast
trying to stay clear of the nuclear submarines
and tourists looking for love and treasures.
In the distance I
saw the Titanic
sleeping on the ocean floor.
I saw her swimming
across the upper deck
she was on that maiden voyage too long ago
She took me to her cabin - An oasis in the sea
We danced a decade away
as the fish and memories swam by
She told me how she had waited
for so long to be discovered
I said, "me too"
as I swam out the door
and returned to the land I never once believed
Some day I will return
to the Titanic and her
But until then I can only stare at her smile
that constantly beckons me to return
and keeps me from having the women I meet
at single bars and barmitzvah parties
knowing beneath the sea she waits for me
pleasure for evermore.
