I still feel drawn towards the fleeing tide
All these years and nothing has changed
The Lady of the Sea arrives in her glory
Only to once again run away and hide
I chase forever it seems to keep her near
As the promise of the steady surf fools me
I believe she will stay high upon the shore
Yet again she steals away at sunsets clear
Her arrival sees me once more at her side
Immersing myself in her unending beauty
Wishing upon sea stars that she will remain
To forever be this Mountains lovely bride
I cannot help but think, we were meant to be
Her gentle shoreline softly meets the rocks
While her waves kiss my steady ruggedness
I ache to become one with my magical sea
Alas I am again reminded far, far too soon
That our bliss is only just a brief encounter
She must be going now and slowly pulls away
Gleaming beauty leaves me under lonely moon
Beautifully written. Reality is hard to swallow sometimes…
The changing of the tides is such a powerful metaphor for different life struggles that it was hard to pick a direction for this one. Unreciprocated love seemed like the most obvious. I am glad you liked it E my friend.
i like your poem alot! i write a lot of similar original stuff you should check out my blog! jameskolt.wordpress.com
Thanks, glad you like it. I will check yours out as well. Feel free to drop in any time and read. Hope you find more to enjoy here.
Sigh … WOW! You obviously know this one joins my list of favorites! You have perfectly captured the emotional essence of the changing tides within our hearts! While unreciprocated love is painful, your beautiful imagery makes it almost understandable and acceptable in a very melancholic way. Awesome write, John! I absolutely adore this one!
Thank you D. I had a hunch this might stir some emotion in you. Glad you liked it. Always nice to hear your compliments.
Thank you Jewels.
This is a lovely piece. I didn’t realize you are a poet!?!
If you want to call it that. LOL. I enjoy poetry and find it therapeutic. I tend to dwell more in the shadows and write darker most times, but I can spread the light from time to time as well. I hope you find time to peruse my work some more and enjoy what you find. I enjoy your blog posts immensely and am a full supporter (and sometimes practitioner. lol) of the fit and healthy lifestyle.
Awesome…..I should have followed sooner! Been missing out it seems! Always lost in my own writing LoL!!! Look forward to reading your stuff! ~~~Felicia
Thanks. Stay fit and keep inspiring…….
