Turbulent tides flow through my soul
Uncertain of where they belong
Only sure that they are no longer a whole

Perhaps there's a stream flowing less than before
There's a weak feeling constantly rushing over
As if the moon won't pull anymore

Or maybe the tide doesn't remember how to get to the
  ocean
Something began to cut it off;
A wall of emotion
More troublesome as an oil spill or terrible storm
This is something completely new
And far from the norm

The tide has now become a lush crimson
And the fish are all afloat
But there's something wading in the water
Could it be...?
Yes, a boat!

Beautiful and huge
It stands tall
Inside it shelters a key that can open all

The only certain way
So powerful it commands the moon
And soon will be sending the tide to bay
More powerful than any typhoon
Yet, as gentle as a dove
The key is engraved and reads:
"Your heart will never be blocked again,
Love"

This poem is very nicely written.  I liked the imagery with the ocean and the rhyme pattern.
Welcome to Passions!

 A life isn't significant except for its impact on other lives.
