Sea of Bitterness, your tears are without end.
They have overflowed and laid waste men.
Their bodies litter your ocean floor,
your thirst for their blood is never quenched.
Sea of Bitterness, your seductive song eludes to the Siren.
Her parenting was vicious and has left you violent.
You're a mistress of Hades Underworld,
justly cursed to be loveless and barren.
Sea of Bitterness, please calm the waters.
Or you will walk down the chilled path of your ancestral mother.
Bound together by twin names,
forever to endure the same pain.
Sea of Bitterness, I wear your crest.
The water and I are one.
It is an abusive lover,
a manipulative friend.
I am scarred by it's moody currents,
and too long has it let me bleed.
Sea of Bitterness is the sordid meaning of my middle name, Marie.
