Life Without You

’twas lonely out there, out in the ocean

over the moonlight, under the coconut tree

with waves splashing, crashing unto the shore

and the sea breeze catches up upon my face

i can taste the saltiness of the sea

then i remembered you

i remembered you and many summers ago

twas many summers ago

on the beach, like anyone else

you taught me life’s important lesson

of survival, from swimming

it isn’t just about bad tan lines,

having raccoon eyes and early mornings

not even just about records, gold medals and best times

i never learned how to swim though,

no matter how i tried

no matter how you tried. 

that night, taught me the fundamentals of living

and critical things i needed to survive life

survive life, without you 

 

’twas many summers ago,

and many years i know, that you said

i will be just right there, up upon the moonlight

under the coconut tree, among the crashing and splashing waves

proudly watching you, learn to swim

as you navigate life,

life without me.

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

descend

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.

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.

Hush Now

20180907_121400

Keep still
amidst chaos and turmoil
all through the roaring thunder
and all through the rising tide
rest your weary heart
like an ocean easing up
after a storm
hush now.
