Let Me In

Standard

With each step further

The cold creeps up my spine

Behind the bushy clouds

The sun hides behind.

I want to be apart of you

If you’ll let me inside

I want us to be one

Rolling, soundless tide.

I wade further into you

The freeze gripping my chest

With the cold pain

I hold my breath.

Suddenly there is warmth

And I know you have let me in

My muscles relax

I feel my body sinking… sinking.

Feels Like Home

Standard

It took you about fifteen minutes to park, I kept busy by writing in my notebook, trying to get all my ideas down on paper so I wouldn’t forget later; because let’s admit it, I always forget come later.

You ease yourself into a parking spot that anyone else would have had trouble with.

We climb out of the car and are welcomed by the ninety-seven degree heat. We embark on our journey just down the road until we hit sand. Immediately, we are greeted with the scent of sunblock and the view of the sun glistening over the ocean ripples.

“Look at the waves,” you awed. They came up in the distance only to break, crashing down just before the shore. I ran off ahead. My right foot stepped into water first. It was chilly, then warm. Each step took me deeper and deeper as the water slapped against me. Then, when I was in shoulders deep, I turned to watch you run through the sand and into the ocean. A big smile on your face as your thick, dark brown hair caught in the wind making you look a joyous and oblivious as a little kid.

A big wave came curling up from behind me. I jumped, with my arms out before me, and rode it into shore to meet up with you. You take me in your strong arms, pulling me against your bare chest, and with my legs wrapped around your waist, you carry me out deeper. Small waves come and go and we hop to float over them, watching them roll to shore.

I’m happy here. In the warm water, under the hot southern sun, with you. It feels like home.

A big wave comes and you throw me over. For a brief second, I’m free-falling, then I hit and sink and laugh. Another one comes and I let it carry me away.

You chose to be defiant. Stand your ground. The waves crash into you and you never falter. Your hazel eyes are locked onto me, squinting in the sunlight. Your pink lips are tight, determined. Your hair is so dark from being wet that it almost looks black and it’s all disheveled from the ocean water beating against you. And the best part about it is, you don’t even know how sexy you look just then.

But I do.

And being here with you, in this new place, it feels like home.

Fish Out Of Water

Standard

I open and close my mouth

Like a fish out of water

Drowning in the air.

It’s my fault

It’s my fault

I can’t find the words to speak

It’s my fault

It’s my fault

I stand there and watch you bleed.

I want to take away your pain

I want to heal you

But I know I am to blame

That I’m the reason you’re turning blue.

Should I step away?

Let you finally be free?

Is it me?

Is it me?

The reason you frown?

Is it me?

Is it me?

Breaking you down?

I’m sorry

I just want to shout

I’m sorry 

But then I open and close my mouth

Like a fish out of water

And I drown in all of the questions

Unanswered.

 

Will You Let Me In?

Standard

How deep are your waters?
How wide is your sea?
How warm is the beach
Where you and I meet?

I want to swim in your ocean
I want to dive in your soul
Will you let me in
Will you let me in
Will you let me into your heart?

How how high is your sky?
How white are your clouds?
How dry is the land
Where you and I touch?

I want to fly in your eyes
I wan to dive in your soul
Will you let me in
Will you let me in
Will you let me into your heart?

How dark is your space?
How bright are your stars?
How far must I go
Until I’m in your arms?

I want to burn in your chest
Take a rocket into your soul
Will you let me in
Will you let me in
Will you let me in at all?

I want to swim in your ocean
I want to fly through your eyes
I want to dive in your soul
Will you let me in
Will you let me in
Will you let me in
Will you let me into your heart?

Will you let me in
Will you let me in
Will you let me in
Will you let me into your heart?

Teetering Edge

Standard

On the ledge
Water’s edge
Face to face with death

Falling to pieces
You’re my glue
But what if your presences ceases?

Teetering on the cliff
The slightest amount of wind
And I could plummet

Slowly sliding off
Will you catch me
Or let me fall?

My home, My haven

Standard

Your irises like crystal waters

swimming around your pupils.

Your skin looks like a snow canvas

but only spreads warmth.

Your hands blank and wide

tightly grips onto mine.

Your lips full and thin

are soft then firm.

Your presence is guarded

but I’m prepared to knock down your walls

because your embrace is my home;

your arms are my haven.

Warrior

Standard

She lifts herself from the water
Shedding her tail like dry skin
With her spear above her head
She prepares to strike down at the beast
Slithering beneath the surface
The storm rages on
Waves lapsing over the stone perch
In the distance a boat teeters over
On the verge of capsizing
She bears no notice
To anything but the green tail
Poking out of the water
A ray of light shines from beneath the storm clouds
Urging her on
The sounds of seagulls
Squawking in fear
Fills her being with courage.
