Undertow

img_5431

All along the undertow

I fought for breath

Every tug upon my senses

Pulling me back

Into your tide

The current strong

As strong as my will

My lungs filling

With the taste of memory

Burning with need

Until I surrendered

My thoughts

Struggling no more

Finding freedom

In the embrace

Of your waves

Garden of sorrow

img_5251

What once had been a garden of sorrow

Soil barren of colour and life

Bloomed with sincere promise

In the light of a new day

Seeds planted

And rooted

In honest need and want

Found sustenance in the care and attention

Bestowed

Blossoming with unexpected vigour

To flower

Regardless of weather

Key

img_5235

Looks could be deceiving

But he always had her measure

Approaching each lock with care

Sensing

But not knowing

The result

As he fit the key within

Carefully

Purposefully

Each click of permission

As lock accepted key

A silent sigh of relief within him

They are the words

They are the words

that embrace me

that caress me

that kiss me

that ravish me

.

They are the words

that wake me to you

that cause me to dream

that saturate my senses

and make vivid and warm each day

.

They are the words

which clarify

which confuse

which cause me such delight

and such torture

.

Those words

the ones I am ravenous for

the ones I greedily consume…

are they hell

or every found miracle…

Clouds gathered

FullSizeRender

The end of summer

Came before summer’s end

As clouds gathered

Beneath his brow

A tempest formed within

The sun sought refuge

With the moon

Hiding its face

Its warmth

The shadow it left

Lengthening across the miles

The deep blue sea

Becoming belligerent

Turning on her

Without mercy

Its waves

Relentlessly

Washing over her

Heedless of its own

Mindless brutality

Drowning her voice

Relegating her

To its cold, dark depths

Where silence

Is all that she hears

Awake

img_5109

It began like Spring,

this stirring within.

Tentative touches forward,

Winter’s chill began to diminish.

She felt the heat of the sun

upon her skin,

once again

kissing her awake.

Captured waves

img_5107

Captured waves of thought

Becoming poetry upon the page

Words that delve into the deep

Of heart, mind, and soul

Rising and catching

With every wave

Passions that ebb and flow

With verse

Pulling the reader in

Stilling their breath

Leaving them in a rush

Of feeling
