Imagine love is akin to the sea

Where tiny waves break

Gently on sand.

Imagine love is akin to the sea

While giant white horses break

With delight over rocks strewn

Like a man lying prone on the sand.

Imagine hate is akin to the sea

With tiny waves swirling and curling

On sand.

Imagine hate is akin to the sea

While giant white horses break

With anger over rocks strewn

Like a man lying prone on the sand.

Imagine great waves akin to a passion

Joyfully break

With enchantment over rocks strewn

Like a man yearning for love.

Imagine great waves twisting and spinning

A rage burning

With loathing over rocks strewn

Like a man in the making.

Imagine love and hate

Both akin to the sea

Stirring magnificant passions

Both joyful and loathing over rocks strewn

Like a man over the moon.
