Break Over Me….

You entice me with your power and force

You undulate, gentle but oh so strong

I long to fall, roll and revel with you

I speak not of love but the sea, of course

You beckon me with such a subtle song

Dark azure water, moving, ever new

Take me to your depths, I will come freely

Give myself to you, stay with you, forget

Walking into your cold embrace, easy

I speak of love, still not forgotten yet

But lost. I will come, lie with you. Free me.

I watch the sea from my apartment every day; the way it changes colour depending on the weather, the way it moves, I’ve seen its power but I’m always calmed in its presence. In reality, I would never give up my life to the sea but I can understand those who do and this was written for them.

    I miss the ocean so much because now I live inland but this resonated so much. Beautifully penned.

        I know what you mean. I hope one day I live by the sea again. I love the fact you can look out the window and observe the sea, like a moving meditation. ❀

    Beautifully written lines Lisa. Made me miss the sea even more than I already do.

    I feel tranquility with a dash of chaos in this. Gorgeous!

    There is an allure to the sea that is hard to resist

    Yes, the sea does draw you in, though when I’m swimming I get out quickly if the waves get too big!
    I was on the cliff top this morning watching Storm Callum whip up the waves – so windy could hardly breathe – fantastic!

      Wow that sounds amazing! Mother Nature is incredible isn’t she 😊 xx

    I, too, can understand the draw that the sea has, as I can understand that standing at the edge of a sheer drop draws those in a self destruct frame of mind. I have thankfully avoided both to date, but still feel the strength you describe. Well written Lisa.
