musings on life, love and laughter from my spoken heart to yours

Across a Bloody Ocean (A poetic response)


Where are you my love
you are not here
where you belong
beside me
you are instead
across a bloody ocean

I could swim in the
cool grey ocean
that is your eyes
get lost at sea
go under

Heart beats fast
life blood pulses
thru veins
rythym builds
Titans prepare
for war

Great storm builds
waves crash
farther, higher
rolling deep
beneath watery

Thunder claps
seagulls cry
the storm peaks
waves crest
upon cavernous

All is at peace
still and listless
a gentle memory
that once was
love across a bloody ocean

  1. This was strong. Sacrifice beckons the bliss. Bliss cries for the sacrifice.

    I loved it!!


  2. Great, powerful writing 🙂


  3. This was lovely … and sad all at the same time. I do like the imagery.


  4. Oh, I love the power in this–and all the layers of ocean you panted. Please do come play with us!


  5. Hello Poppet, I’ve been a busy Bear tonight and arrive late and weary – but find your romance kindles a late fire in my tired heart!
