Oceans of Uncertainty

by Lacy D Phillips

I drive home with your coppery taste in my mouth
and can't help but dwell on the many minute mismatches
that might just add up to an end of this, a fatal incompatibility.
There is some intangible corruption at work here.
It eats away at my esteem for you, sinks you lower
till the sparkling blue I see isn't that of your keen eyes on mine
but the churning surface of my own doubts reflected there.
And if I could just dive in where I have no means to follow
then we might both be filled instead of hollowed.

Those last two lines are absolutely flawless. They seem to move and breathe perfectly.

Hi Lacy, Good one. It works well together. Loves's not always easy, keeps us wondering at times.
