Hanging With Beach Bums & Bashful Babes

Hanging with beach bums & bashful babes

Swimming in the surf on late Spring days

Colorful flavors poured gently over ice

Skin glowing after hours in the pleasant rays

I thought I saw a Sea Hag along the sand

Though she revealed herself to be a Siren

Coaxing & teasing me with her demure allure

Whispering that I might be a modern Lord Byron

Uncomfortable with compliments of any sort

I quietly pull out my pen to jot down an ode

Her eyes grow wide, then a smirk & a wink

Simultaneously my mind, heart & loins explode

Moments Filled With Tragic Thoughts

Moments filled with tragic thoughts
A past I never wanted to defend
Those weren’t the only ones
Wasted time you never got to spend
Heartbroken & scattered about
Cannot remain stagnant out of spite
Motivation needed to gather yourself
Fewer sands to rebuild up to that height

islands far off in the chain

girl-923573.jpgislands far off in the chain
boat drinks to ease the pain
faded footprints in the sand
wondering what to understand
the wrong ones seem to fall
emptying into life’s easy stall
try to wipe away transgression
avoid the depths of depression
find something good and well
broken bottles in that old hotel
whispers in a decadent night
clothes falling within my sight
my soul feels damaged & scraped
walking away, only to escape

Where Do You Want To Be

 

Where do you want to be
Life on an isolated island of sand
Sunshine beaming down to kiss your skin
Throwing out all the dreams they had planned
Turn your back on their expectations of your soul
Take time to love yourself before time expires
No one will care about you like you need to
Shun the shade; feel the passion of the sun’s fire

Tracing These Feelings Back

Tracing these feelings back
Wondering where you began to care
Why did you lose your resolve
& fall in love in the summer’s glare
A palm grove as a backdrop
Kissing quietly behind the reeds
Feeling more than you had expected
Unsure of the coming needs
Layers on sand now everywhere
Breeze feeling cool upon your bare hips
Hopeful surprises found refreshing
Nothing less than passion upon your lips

Life Gets Complicated – A Furious Mess

palm-336688.jpg

Life gets complicated – a furious mess

Undisclosed pain seeping out at the worst time

Stress building towards a fatal fracture

Exit stage right – I need an island & a lime

I want to get my toes dirty in the sand

& find a way to cleanse this sutured heart

To be free from the burden of this memory

To become salt laden before it all falls apart

Elegant Angles Along The Forefront

Elegant angles along the forefront
Passionate yearnings of the mind
Staggering footprints in the sand
Flowing a little slow from behind
Dusting yourself off in the dark
We cannot always count on them
Keeping our thoughts to ourselves
Feeling dizzy with the sight of your hem
