<pre>
I hear the roaring.
Deep throated
Like a provoked beast.
The sea growls and thunders.
Cover my eyes,
Shut out the sea.
Open spaces frighten me.
Come, stand here,
And close my horizon.
Let me see your eyes,
And see no further.
Black, thunderous clouds,
Roll and unroll.
A baleful wave rears up
Like a hand raised to strike.
Shall I borrow the seagull's courage,
And float over the crest,
Of an angry wave?
Should I stand or flee?
The night trembles
With a mindless passion.
Come, hold me tight.
Let me see you,
And see no more.
</pre>

Sahir, I think, one "x" is superfluous in xxxxxxxx

Sorry, I got carried away and an extra 'x' crept in. What do you think of the poem? It's my first attempt. It looks kinda silly to me. But I posted it here anyway.

You are an imposter and a plagiarist.
