My Blue World

Published: December 2013

I know a place where the world is still
where time and space have no hold
I know a place where my heart and soul are one
and there are stories left untold

I know a place where I rest in peace
where my body lies numbed to pain
where my eyes lie opened to the light above
And I've broken gravity's chain

I know a place
Where I must leave as seconds pass
my frail mortality cannot stand against its grave
and my lungs shatter like glass

I know a place so wonderful and deadly
It pulls me into deep
Oh my deep blue ocean world
I'll return to you after the surface pulls you from me.

I can definitely feel the passion in this poem, and just so you know, I have the same sort of passion for the sea.

I love the ocean as well, just the sound of its waves and the smell of the salty water and the breeze that carries it. When I get mad or sad I just think of the ocean, and it calms me down. I so badly want to visit the ocean soon. It's been long since I've last been to one. Reading your poem made feel as if I were there by the ocean. Great poem!
