In a too familiar whim of feeling drowned, I jump onto this raft that manifests
You are an ocean of mystery: inexplainable, inexplicit, infinite I read somewhere that 95% of the ocean is unexplored
As I sink into the sandy shores, I feel the turbulent ocean pull me in, Retracting and extending her bountiful body, I sit in the serenity of whimsical winds,
When the ocean is far awayand the wind is full of sand instead of salt,I dive back into the green pools offorgotten peace in your eyes.I swim through lakes of cheap vodkaand expensive memories.
you are like the ocean I stand on the beach and your tide rushes up to me your foam softly brushes my toes it feels nice to be with you so I wade in further your slow rolling waves rise against my legs
Take me far away to a paradise where I can listen to the sound of the ocean against the shore instead of my heart thumping inside of me when I am near you Please get out of my fucking head I want to die
There's a calm silence
Small, happy red fish flipping in the bright blue waves. Jump, splash, goodbye friend.
The Sea is a Bliss, As the Sun Offers a Kiss. The Blowing of a Strong Gale, Fills My Sail.
Move like an ocean,
You used to whisper into my ear sweet nothings I love you, I would never hurt you, Leave you, I will only and always love you.
Dirty feet and white sheetsLovers down and oceans foundTravel with me and discoverWhere we are and where we are meant to be
My hair has always reminded me of the ocean
His eyes are unsettling, a deep brewing ocean. And the waves in them roll Over and over again in my mind like marbles against my fingers, His hair lay in knots but perfectly calculated knots
Why do we wake up? Humans are evil . Humans are dumb. Humans can think yes. But only of what suits them best. Humans walk beside the rest of us. Forgetting they are the rest of us
you think there's an ocean of things you've yet to learn about me but there's really not that much it's more like a pool in that it isn't so infinite or mysterious but still waters run deep
He is the ocean, the calming blue sea, teaming with vibrant life, and miles and miles of open space
He rushed over me, His touch cold at first, But so warm after. He'd pull in, Away, And I exulted in his rhythm. When I wasn't submerged in him, Completely absorbed in his presence,
The Sun beams down Through the mess of white clouds. And the water crashes on the sand. It's been so long since I've been here, This sounds tells me I'm not alone.
I will remember these nights like the tide remembers to kiss the shoreline--
Theres days when I fall and can't get back up only to find a solution for me finding my balance again
I prayed that I was dreaming When I saw that big wave The water was not normal But as dark as a cave It was full of weird greens and reds and blacks
I fell in love with the ocean, Its murky depths became my home. Everyday I would go to her, Skip rocks over her delicate skin, And she would tickle my limbs, Her cold hands trembling in my presence.
You are the sky I am the sea and although we make each other complete the universe says we shall never meet. We are divided by a horizon made prevalent by the sun that you see
Confidently unthinking I walked into the shadows I thought I was Lolita, hardly, really I was callow
Euphoric my soul has been marked Untroubled written on my heart No amount of sorrow
I wanna feel the ocean's waves engulf me in it's blue wonderland, To feel safe and secure. Someone hold, Because I just might drown. To feel the heat-absorbed sand hug my toes,
As I gaze into the jeweled night
You make me look forward to the morning. That crystalline smile like a sunrise resting against still waters. I get lost in your calm and collarbone kisses seep down into my soul like dawn dew.
My Body is an ocean It is graceful and it is powerfulIt is strong
You are my oasis. The sky is blue, blue waters, bright sand, you are the water that turns my desert into a beach, you, shade of the leaves that rewrites trials into isles of paradise,
It's roaring Teasing shores back and forth Fading Disappearing Reappearing Picking up momentum Picking up sound It's loud Clashing Crashing Vibrating Screaming
A shot fired across the decka weakened hull. A turning tide.Well, all our anchors hang on chainsand dangle off our changing minds.
Do you hate the way that our magnetized timesturn us all to metal shavings-- push and pull--charged eachday to fill up negative spacewith negative attraction?Were you repulsed when polarities
Slowly, slowly sailing. Lazily, readily, whimsically, wailing. Waves around us, dancing and singing, the bell on the lighthouse softly ringing. A "swoosh" of the sea foam,
My tangled feet drift through the weaving waves, scarlet scales hiding my skin. Eel whispers wind through my head, the poisonous words biting my ears.

By the sea I heard crashing of waves And people... I hear them shouting my name. softly... THEN LOUDLY! SHOUTING LOUDLY, "OH MORTAL! HOW DARE YOU FIGHT US! YOU CAN'T ESCAPE US!
She's standing there among the leaves, Quieter than the sounds of snow
Eyes swollen with sorrow and unshed tears, Burning for being open too long. A body that weighs a thousand pounds, Screaming in protest from running. To the ocean rationalizes the mind,
Waves splash against the cliff
Life seems to be an endless ocean Rocking my life boat in a churning fashion. One moment I can feel the wave Lift me up, higher than I have yet To be, then, the next of the brave:
The ocean So turbulent So wavy And yet Underneath It's perfectly calm
Used to the constant gunfire since you first set sail, This time is different. This time their cannons have crashed too deep. Slam the galley doors as water floods from the ducts, Choking out your cries.
The ocean waves touch my feet As I walk along the lonely beach Hands in my pocket, my head held high Tears streaming down my face
A world with and without you The perfect hue of your eye color
The only thing she's held accountable for is the heart she's mended
Maybe if I pretend I'm okayI will be
I close my eys and visualize my future, a future where I am taking care of animals, curing their injuries, making sure they are okay. Dogs wagging their tails, cats mewing from their cages,
There are too many things that make up a person. We want to compact them all Into one item “Do you like this?
Down at the ocean blue Whorls of sea foam churn madly Like the feelings in this beating chest My heart trembles like a victim of anthrax poisoning viciously suffocating
We are of the sea We flock to the sound of crashing waves We walk barefoot feeling grains of sand slip though our toes We breathe in cold, salted air, and feel the warmth of the sun on our skin
"Your ears are the ocean," my friend said, and I imagined the wash of waves erasing the auditory footsteps hanging like fading dreams in the clear morning light of the seashore.
My imagination glows A pulsing radiance Tempting the average soul Like flies to a light It burns bright in me A candle of creativity So vibrant, so strong
All I really know is that my favorite color has always been blue. As I have grown up in life it was the sea and the sky that I intrigued me.
I've yet to swim in the darkest depths, for I never want to stay on the surface.
Oh, ocean waves flow freely on the sand
One time, i wrote a poem On a piece of paper with No lines. And i cried, Smudging all the little letters. The ants drowned by Saltwater. They thrashed and thrashed and thrashed,
All my life I dreamed of exploring the ocean. Seeing the different marine life, Feeling what it's like to be surrounded by emptiness. I also love to work on automobiles,
Mid the evening as I walk along the shore, Inside of me a burning comes, like one never has before. Beyond the horizon I long to be, far from land and out to sea.
The Ocean and Its Sand The Pelican was there, I believe, though now long gone. Still, the heart beats and the mind wanders on. The early fog has disappeared; feather clouds take its place.
LoveThe largest ocean in the seaAnd the deadliestFor it has no islandNo escapeFor you will become blindFrom all the sharksPulling your leg like no tomorrowOnly gazing at the breath
Warm salty yet smooth waves covered my feet like a blanket Trying to look past the currents- the waves and the boats
Take me to the ocean where the sun meets the sea take me to the ocean where the salt can touch me And my tears will fall and float across the world until they find you
A luminiscent blanket bathed in silvery spindles of light from the heavens. Misty shimmers casually float skyward, eventually giving way to a pale glow. A familiar face offers comfort from the darkness.
I walk From here to there is
Grains of sand wiggle their way between my impatient toes The glimmering ocean waves three yards away Surreptitious seabirds sidle towards a fisherman’s catch Timid crabs scuttle from one eroded rock to another
This is the name you were born with,
I could get lost in you The mystery of you Pulls me closer Willingly I dive into you Silence You wrap around me Calming my body and mind You never leave my thoughts
She went for a swim. When the sun was high and vicious and scalded the ground she walked on, she went for a swim.
Cool, ocean water nudges my crinkled toes A gentle breeze sifts through the giant, leaves of the palm trees Swaying them like the exotic dancers of a waltz. Looking up, I watch fluffy white figures slowly dance
the ladies of the foam prepare for the dance their legs kicking higher as they stretch to the sky the ladies of the foam start the opening number slowly
The ocean currents Of blissful magnitude The smell of sand The breeze of freshness Back. Forth. Back. Forth. Small intervals of wind Keeping my body In a state of frenzy. Bluest of skies
She is marvelous. Her dark coat glistens with love, shimmers with brilliance. Her eyes, dark with wonder, are brightened through learning. And she moves. It is as if her legs know no limits.
The wall of the wave comes powering forward from a small distance My heart races with beat of my stroke as I paddle into a good position
Look at the glistening waves, gliding in and out
Let's take the boat out
as i swam across the atlantic a fish stopped me
My skin is cool I’ve stopped feeling blue
The ocean shifted
Paddling so hard from the water wall behind. Too slow and i fall. Then I tumble and I roll to submerge to the unknown.
The aquatic garden, when seen from space, is vast, mystical, and blue It has many unique, sea creatures living in it too Some burrow, some float, some dart from side to side
I dreamt I was drowning in the raging sea Cold iron was harshly pulling me Down to the depths as I choked on fire And as my flailing arms dared tire I awoke in the real world conscious of pain
I escape this hectic world Full of hate and suffering To find peace and happiness This is my escape I come here near noon
I hear, I feel, and I see as water comes to my knees The sunlight shining so brightly And wispy clouds lick the sky lightly A cool wind caresses my face While little children make chase
This thing of love, of loving and being loved. It consumes me in the gentlest of ways, softly washing over me until I've been covered up; a blissful drowning. I've become willing to risk hitting a shelf
In raging currents, all was lost, A child tossed crimson yarn about the wind-struck rocks, others stowed away in wrinkles of the sea. They hid inside dragonfly homes. When the tide unfolded,
He waded through the water anxious, like flame in the wind. The molecules engulfed his feet entirely, washing his sin. The night's stars were gleaming bright, crying out to him.
Here on my back, fog softening its edges and without clouds the sky is the color of cold light shining from grey silk lingerie it is smooth and flat and could fall upon my head at any instant.

Navigation Not a single student escapes the lash of a pen . A clean sheet of paper is dirtied with the red of a checkmark screaming, "You are never good enough." Chipped blackboards
Gazing upon the windows of night, Soft Shells crushed in my hands, I cry as my tears fall upon scattered sand kingdoms. Intricate life scattered like sand upon the beach I stand upon.
your heart is the altar at which i worship. your kiss is holy wine. the ocean is our church and the waves are our prayers.
I stand on the beach, The sand between my toes, The salty breeze through my hair, Where does my time go? I sit to watch the crashing waves, In and out, in and out, Then I jump up,
Voices haunt my sleep. Soaring shadows awaken my soul. Falling far, far, far down into the depths of ruins and caves you left empty for my arrival.
Eyes open, And Dawn breaks. Crystalline blue, The vast, eternal sky. Sheer beauty, In its icy chill. Oceanic waves, Ever powerful and strong. Yet gentle,
Her eyes were blue like the ocean. The salty waves form and roll on shore, her cheek. The continue to flow until they drown her. Her eyes, the sea, a door.

Surfers are different from normal people While normal people are tying down furniture And boarding up windows Surfers are tightening their fins And waxing their boards
The words envelope me, Comfort me, Free me, And let me speak without saying a word. Each sylabl ringing, clearing my mind, and rolling off my tongue with every annouciation.
Drowning in a sea of emotions the currents of anger pulls me back while melancholy drags me d o w n. In the ocean of the mind there is no escape or relief
When you see a word, scrawled on a line. Does it ground your thoughts, Like on anchor Deep in the sea? Does your mind roil, Like a storm that grew up, All alone, Abandoned by its parents?
A flicker floats upon a crystal sea. The chilly clear white-caps Damask a dance of cold intricity- Beneath the wind that flaps,
With 7 billion people in the world, it is easy to be just another face in the crowd, craving attention by being loud. We are all born with a voice deep inside of us, which can develop over time with

your hips could tell stories of lovers past before me. of the mornings you lay bare, alone in your bed with only the silence surrounding.
The sea shimmers like sunlight on chrome Loud crashing waves and soft silky sand are my living room The beach is the place I call home My home is unlike the old empire of Rome
When you look at life as an Ocean, you will suddenly start sinking. You see the beauty all around, as you struggle to keep breathing. Your lungs are full of water, the oxygen is depleting.

I miss the ocean. The way his strong arms wrap around me as I swim. The trust that he will hold me up when I lie down on him. I miss the ocean. The way his tousled dark hair gets caught between my fingers.
The bitter sound of depression slowly devoured my body deeper and deeper sinking into a new demension where the full ocean of sorrow was whipped again far, far away
I was born into this life, flew into the earth head held high, clenched fist raised to the sky I’d heard all the rumors, of warfare and hate
Waves breaking on a quiet shore Darkening drier sand once more I stand searching the horizon Breathing in, feeling enlivened I hold adventure beneath my arm Yearning to run where the big waves are
A what a strange world we live in. How one joke is a muse, but flipped is abuse. How the light at the end is glory from war, but is also the big gold gates to The Lord.
One step forward The soft sand cushions my foot with its tenderness and warmth Seeping between the secret crevices of my toes The sun drenched grains heat my feet Almost burning But not enough to hurt

Seafarers speak of a mother, yet do they mean the woman who bore them or the blessed virgin whose child granted them salvation? No, not they. The one of whom they speak, they sing, is angry, is cruel,
Waves crashing along the shore, All I see is more and more. They keep on moving until dawn, Flowing channels move on and on. Seeing willful water pull the soft sand, Taking it away hand in hand.
My desire to fish burns deep from inside, I can not stand to be away from the ocean. And every time I see water I get the notion, To head to the dock where from the world, I can hide.

Far down the glistening ocean We heard the sound of a whale So loud that no one can tell, passing closeby our boat We peered down to see the shimmer of millions of bioluminescent plankton
Little stream through the woods How sad and lonely you must be Tired too though many can’t see You fight and fight to make it through And one day when you finally do In the big ocean you will be
And I could fall asleep to your voice, The tiny rippling waves washing up on the shores of my ear drums, Crashing and retreating back to the open blue from which they came.
It's the weekend and I'm creeping with some friends. When it hits 7 o'clock my fun has to always end. I must come home before father gets home. Usually when he's home I wish that I was alone.
My soul is river stone And fire fed Dragon eyed and embered Lurking in mountain’s jeweled gold Soaring on iron wings
I come from a land of glad where no one is sad nor mad. They have lots of good toys for little girls and boys. This land of glad I say is not that far away. 'Tis like our land of cocaine and meth

I grab my pen and I escape, My own world begins to shape; All my struggles fade away, Vivid colors replace the gray.
The night’s young but the tide is high The black skies that petrify Lying on the shore I let the tide engulf me The ice cold embrace of the water drags me down Sinking like a stone I submit to the water’s grip
Just let me curl to your form Sleep in the same bed and Inhale, Your wonderful light as air scent. Maybe it's dark and heavy, Like the ocean waves crashing Against the shore that smother it,
I am a shell, holding the possibility of life soft to touch, but strong, and yet, still vulnerable I am an embryo, racing to grow while being shadowed by death I am a hatchling
I miss the days when the ocean licked my ankles and speckled sand bit my toes. I miss seaweed swimming through my legs and clinging to my bathing suit like a small child to her mother.
the sweet little nothings you once whispered are now imprinted in my brain. they are cave paintings on a wall written in forever ink.
Though I know you not, I’m compelled to write Of your beauty, and nature so tender Your smile radiates, And shine like moonlight.
The crash of the waves Upon the shore The smell of the salt Oft described in folklore The feel of the sand Warm and soft underfoot The cry of the seagulls They saw my fresh fruit
I stand upon the endless shore, Gazing at the great beyond, Soaking every open dream it holds, Hearing its endless song.
This feeling I cannot explain, beyond my mind I cannot tame. A thought so sweet, so soft, so docile has been tearing up my restless brain.My lips the smoothest messenger, my heart it's strongest warrior, blind among the coming wave.
A squinting fisherman whispers, come strangers, deep battles, afternoon hostility, emerging whales with white tails, chase the horizon
Waves crashing through the shore Cleansing what once lay there The promise of a new beginning over the horizon Looking over the vast continuity of the sea The light reflects off the waves like a prism of light
Oh how I wish that I could stay under the blue and beneath the waves, exploring secrets that remain unseen even by scientists in a submarine.

I've fallen victim to the sea. Now I can't catch my breath, and I'm constantly reminded of the unending wrath...
I have found you in this small room, neatly tucked away in the closet so no one can see you. Never have I seen a body tremble so rapidly. Much like the movements of a leaf when it takes off in its autumn wind.
An Endless Descent, Tumbling slowly into the deep. Gentle waves above, With Silver beams shining down. Head over heels, Sinking into the warmth. Angel down floats by, Coating the floor.
Peep, slip under the surface tension. Dip, sail under the current's one-way mirror. I found your skin buried under the old yew. I fell in love with your form, your ocean grace. Mermaid of fur. Dog of my heart's ship; my ship's heart.
The pungent smell of saltwater soaks the air The sound of swishing, crashing impatient waves Are rolling children dog-piling in playful chaos Racing toward the shore
As I went down to the pretty ocean There was a very beautiful bright sun It stood over the waves that were in motion When I danced and played I had so much fun While the sun went down we started to cook
Like the tides of time Foam clouds on emerald skies Softly kiss the sand
Among the ebb and flow of the Earth Among the flourishing promise of human life Among whatever secrets this land may hold beneath my feet True peace lies in the sand
She steps into the water, Spirals of foam pulling at her ankles. The ocean billows out before her Like a pair of sails in the wind. A pelican rests in the water Out beyond the waves.
The sea sings a sweet song of my desire Morning sunlight kisses my warm, pale cheeks A marbled sunrise painted the color of fire On wind-swept sand sea birds preen with their beaks
Respect the beauty of what God has to offer Go gently, seeking all beauty and bounty Tread lightly, in the blue abyss, never ending All encompassing, what the sea can bless us with A day of surf, I leave it all behind
My Compass rose, in sync with yours You are the two heads, to my oars, I thank the wind, the land, the sea, That God has washed you to my shores
The waves hit the rocks, shifting and slapping the sand. The seagulls no longer singing in the band.
Whisper-red clouds in the dusky day A wheel of passion upon the sky Puzzles of earth growing nigh Whipped with wind dancing to the free And children singing in the dusky day
Splash! Splash! The waves hit the beam. Click! Click, click, click, click, click! The winch whines as the sheet is hauled in. Creak, creak! The hull groans under the stress.
People love to tell you that “You are the captain of your own soul!” What they neglect to tell you Is that they are at the helm And should you hit an iceberg It is you who must go down with the ship.
‘Tis sweet thither sun, atop th’ wavèd sea. Lone candle in darkness, from whence it hath risen.
What is a body but from dust is flesh? 'Tis purposeful to carry every soul, O'er life we sail, traverse with burdens set, [This skeleton!] This ship! The cracks are felt from deck to hull.
