Jonah's whale

Oh, me!

I'm caught between

A fisherman's tale and

His hook and line.

I'm alone in the sea,

Like Jonah's whale,

Like how no-one is free

Who is alive!

 

What a terrible dream,

What a beautiful sky,

Does it mean anything?

Does it soften your eyes?

And the more that you see,

The more that you try,

And the less it will be

Worth your time

Very nice. Kinda reminds me

Very nice. Kinda reminds me of someone standing up to a betrayal by a loved one. Left alone in the sea, the more that you try and the less it will be worth your time. awesome lines!

Thanks

Interesting analysis, I had none of that in mind when I wrote it, though I can totally see it being read that way
