Safe Haven -poem

the spattering and splashing of the waves from the ocean striking and surging every movement

is like a dispute rushing and rustling in my head comes back bigger and greater in every

and as i lay my head unto your chest
i listened carefully to the silent beating of your heart

i am in a placid state, undisturbed, unruffled, waveless

you wrap your zealous arms around me
in a tender whisper you say “hush now my love, keep still”

there, in your loving arms i found my sweetest and safest haven.


Written for and inspired by:


Inspired by the post and photograph of Gina from Singledust. I left a comment on her comment box and she said i should write a poem about it.

  1. oh i love it! it says perfectly how vulnerable i am in his arms and like the ocean am so waveless at times until his zealous arms hold me. oh I have goosebumps from your poetry, thank you for writing this, it is really a picture of deep and steadfast love that the ocean can bring to us mere mortals. so love”waveless”!

    1. Yey..i can do back flips rigth am seriously glad you like it and that it conveys the exact feeling you want me to say..hurray for love!!!hurray for poetry!!!☺☺

      1. i am joining in that hurray! and now also enjoying all the readers feedback both here and on my blog, this is truly such a special gift to me today.

  2. In our love’s arms we are safe. As it should be…
    Let distress un-stress, and let the ebb of waves erase worry.

    Too often our minds go in circles about the chaos of days events.
    Romance helps to sooth and smooth our ruffled emotions 🙂

    1. Thanks Joey.. “silent beating of your heart” could be interpreted in so many ways depending on how you want your message to be. It could mean the “stillness fo your love” could also mean ” loving words unspoken”..
