This is a poem of the sea and of the life of one woman. Please give constructive criticism. It truly has no title but I gave it one for the purpose of this site.

Her face hangs ravaged by the wind and waves,

Her chiseled features broken by the crashing seas.

Her mast hangs broken cross her beaten prow,

Its jagged end cutting the water below.


The wind flaps her shredded sails,

Torn thither by the raging gale.

Whips hair across a tear stained face,

Framing once bright eyes in its tattered grace.


Her hull rings silent save the beating of the rain.

None can hear her whispered cries,

None to see her silent-born pain.

And on her side in still-bright paint it reads,

"The Sea Bride"
