While reading through my new friend Desiree’s blog site, and becoming an instant fan of her creative and passionate talent with words, I ran across the namesake poem of her site “Sea Of Desire”. I was instantly floored by it’s tragic beauty and was inspired to expand on it with her permission. Please check it out and seepart oneof this piece for yourself as well as see what else she has in store for you. You can find “Sea Of Desire” athttp://seaofdesire.wordpress.com/2013/11/13/sea-of-desire/
Thank you D. for allowing me the privilege of continuing your story
Suddenly my ears are sharply alerted Sounds of distant cries bring chills Reverberating through the trees Directly from the waters edge
Not the customary song of sirens Nor Poseidons furious commands Something different…
I make my way to the sea with haste As desperations urgent call demands I arrive to look upon tumultuous ocean A violent skirmish between the tides. I scan the depths for outcry’s source As a myriad of sea creatures wage war
My surprise and dismay overwhelm me As I watch briny blue turn crimson red My eyes look upon raw beauty As it is thrashed violently about Murky depths fill with scarlet clouds Cascading from her bleeding heart
No hesitation holds me back as I charge Bravely through the dangerous surf Extricating fair maiden from coral razors Delivering her exhausted figure to the shore
I lay this broken and bleeding vision gently down Her weakened loveliness tenderly graces the sand Softly I begin to breathe my existence into hers Whispers of my life fill her heart and soul Slowly she comes alive in my embrace Her wounds swiftly heal as if by magic As warmth and passion returns to her lips
She opens her eyes to reveal true brilliance As captivatingly vast as the eternal sky Delivered sweetly by her piercing gaze I can see deeply into her delicate soul
I am mesmerized by the flames of endless love As they flicker and dance in the distance
How I now yearn to be lost in those eyes. Forever in harmony with passions heartsong To be in full command of every dangerous curve Yet a slave to her silken, sultry seduction
Every fibre of my being cries out in frustrated agony As I am stricken with most assured recognition That this wild heart can never be tamed
I shall never know the elation of her spirit Never feel the ecstasy her touch provides For she truly belongs to the ocean This exquisite lady of the sea
I am left with an insatiable longing An overwhelming ache to be set free Cast adrift in a neverending SEA OF DESIRE
I have no command of language or emotion at the moment, as I suspected would be the case. I am blessed to have found an invaluable friend with tremendous talent. In all sincere honesty —- WOW and thank you for being so inspired.

And thank you for being the inspiration. Glad you think I followed it up well. Thank you for letting me expand on Sea of Desire. It was a fun write.
I felt this. Really felt it. Marvellous. Majestic. Magical. Loved it. x
Thank you friend. I am glad it came across as genuine as it felt to write. I wish you a Merry Christmas, and may you receive all the Peace, Love, and Joy you so truly deserve this holiday season, and every day that follows.
It was wonderful. And it allowed me to link to Desiree whose piece was just beautiful too. So I won twice! I hope you and yours have a wonderful Christmas.x
I am glad. That piece of hers struck deep with me. Obviously. lol.Thanks again. I always appreciate your wonderful comments, and your beautiful way with poetic wordcraft.
Merry Christmas my friend…
To you as well. Thank you.
I loved reading it. Mainly: “I am left with an insatiable longing. An overwhelming ache to be set free. Cast adrift in a neverending SEA OF DESIRE”
Thank you. I am glad that spoke to you. It seems there is always a reason to look enviously on the things you wish to be………
Hmm, yes, indeed. But to some people it could be: “It seems there is always a reason to look hopefully on the things you wish to be…” 😉
HOPEFULLY. I like that word much better than enviously. Thank you for your perspective.
I find a new favorite line every time I read this. Tonight it is “How I now yearn to be lost in those eyes.
Forever in harmony with passions heartsong
To be in full command of every dangerous curve” — or is that 3 lines? Doesn’t matter. Tonight these words are my favorite.
1st, it’s flattering that you go back and visit, and 2nd, it is so cool that you see something different you like each time. I am humbled by your admiration of my words D.
I am quite certain I am not the only admirer you have. I am probably just more obvious about it than most!! Hope you have a good night, John.
LOL. I dunno about all that now. But I can honestly say I appreciate and return every bit of admiration my friend. Especially when I am not seeing life with a smile at the moment.
I wish I had the power to do something about your smile AND your view of life at the moment!! Personally, I think there is much to look forward to for us both. There is a lot of sharing and exploring to be done — which will hopefully bring us both smiles and comfort.
Power or not, you just did. The thought of what the future holds made me smile. Thank you D.
Then hold onto that promise of the future tightly and know that smile will be one of many ……….
A powerful poem which not only provides a great continuation, but also stands alone really well. You have painted a vivid picture!
Thank you. Glad you enjoyed it.
And I return here for a smile and some more of that shadowed serenity!!! Still love this piece so very much!!
I love the way the initial desperate intensity of violence morphs into the desperate intensity of love. Well done.
Thank you for the compliment DWP. I am so glad you enjoyed this.
