Night by the Ocean

Finally I have managed to finish a poem and it didn't take me more than two days to finish this one! While I have unfinished poems that I have started writing before months but for a reason or another I am stuck in the middle!
Anyway this poem is called "Night by the Ocean" though I have never seen any ocean in my life before :P




The hasty waves of the ocean
Washes away the footprints on the sand
And the cold breeze moving in slow motion
Strikes my face and does not stop where I stand
It goes on and it is like a healing potion
Prescribed for the broken hearted land

And when the ocean embraces the shore
Like a hopeless lover waiting to belong
The sky is joyous like never before
While the ocean's waves sing a song
Such a perfect scene is impossible to ignore
A hopeless poet like me cannot but write along

On the page of water, reflection of the moon
So clear, sending comfort to the wondering eye
And the stars dance to a lovely tune
Played by the water, sand and the sky
But all of that is going to end so soon
When the morning breathes its first sigh

Where is that ocean?

I have many wounds that I need to heal.

This ocean is in my poem! You have to live in it to see the ocean and heal your wounds.

Hope said...

GOD forbid love ever leave you empty handed,
I hope you still feel small when you stand beside the ocean,
Whenever one door closes I hope one more opens,
Promise me that you'll give faith a fighting chance,
And when you get the choice to sit it out or dance.

I hope you dance....I hope you dance.

Well you are not the only who thinks like that. But when I started the blog I was kinda hopeless and the nick got stuck ;)
And I am glad you liked the blog :)
