I close my eyes in the midst of a dreary day
And slowly fade away from this place
Impatient I was, since I couldn’t stay
In this world full of lies fabricated by lace
My toes curl up in the warm dry sand
As I run to the lapping shoreline
It can be a brute and a monster, but on the other hand
It’s a place so serene yet so divine.
Its magical to see- the waves that crashed against the shore
The way the exquisite roar penetrated the silence
The way water reflects a beautiful truth
Only then do you truly appreciate the things that once made no sense.
I see a group of surfers balancing-trying to stay afloat
One wrong step- you plunge into the deep ocean
And eventually they resurface-from the deep cerulean coat
To have another ride on the back of the majestic ocean.
As I danced with waves in the darkness
And was one with the creatures of the sea
Slowly I was becoming familiar with the harness
Falling in love with the ocean -with anchors tied to my feet.
If the diverse ocean were a country, I’d prolly be an oyster.
If someone tries to pry me open-I’ll break as its rare for me to open up
Because every time I have- they steal my pearl away.
And pearls take years to make anyway.
When its time for me to recover back to reality
I feel nostalgic to leave the calm and composed sea
The high tide might erase my footprints
But none can take the sea within away from me.
I lazily wake up from the dream of tranquil to the one of chaos
And firmly tell myself,
I must go down to the lonely sea and sky again
And all I ask is a tall ship and a star to steer her by!
