I Feel Tension Running Through My Veins

I feel tension running through my veins
Trying my best to control everything in my realm
Though I know I lost my rudder some ways back
Drifting at sea with a useless helm
This frustration trying to overtake my life
Searching everywhere for something to guide
Been far too long since I tossed out my anchor
Need to seek forgiveness & be grateful for the Lord at my side

The Sea Villanelle

capsize-184167

A love that’s only known to me
Weigh anchor – Sail with the tide
When I’m off exploring the sea

A lass that’s sassy & steadily free
Couldn’t forget her, Lord knows I tried
A love that’s only known to me

When the winds cry like a Banshee
The ocean will be my endless guide
When I’m off exploring the sea

Venturing off to a land of palm trees
Needing to nurse my wounded pride
A love that’s only known to me

In spite of life, still merely a latchkey
Waiting for when my sails have dried
When I’m off exploring the sea

A pirate – all I ever wanted to be
I’ll forever hold who’s on my side
A love that’s only known to me
When I’m off exploring the sea
