only the ocean and me

only the ocean and me

It wasn’t the best of weekends. I read a threatening poem dedicated to a friend. Meanwhile, another friend received angry, unkind messages because of a post I shared on Friday.

My blog has been a vehicle for me to promote women and love. There has always been one constant message – positivity.  It is all I know.

I refuse to condone, accept, or promote hate, envy, bullying, or violence. Love, acceptance, and understanding are the cure.

During my worst moments, I always retreat to my favorite lady. She always resets my mind, my inner peace, and priorities.

I often feel these lyrics by Jack Johnson were written for me.

When this work is done
And this coat is dry
When this world is too much
It will be
Only the ocean and me

When these sails go up
Mountains fade away
Stars come out
I’m finally free
it’s only the ocean and me

a cappella

For my muse……

a cappella

words come in waves
a chorus splashing in harmony
drenching my dancing heart
as my muse croons
her siren melody
a hypnotic verse reminiscent
of the haunting a cappella
sung by a lonely sea
urging me to fall overboard
into the depth of her words
submerged in metaphors
drowning in poetry

love tsunami

love tsunami

.

Heartbreak can be wider than the ocean
The pain can penetrate as deep as the sea
Since he hurt you you’re drowning in tears
But don’t be afraid to take a chance on me

The seas of love have the power of healing
Swim with me and everything will be fine
We can flow wherever the currents take us
Let’s fall in love and leave our scars behind

The two of us could make the biggest splash
If we let the waters wash over you and me
So let’s get caught in the waves of passion
For together we will start a love tsunami
