I am an aspiring writer who loves reading (and creating) tales of fantasy and adventure, writing poetry, and exploring new genres. I hope that some day I will become a decent writer, but one step at a time!

Considering being active again...

Message to Readers

(Previously under the temporary title of "Marine Lament". I republished the piece to edit this readers' message, where I was asking for title suggestions. I don't need those anymore :)

Very rough, very unedited, very bad. Oh well :l

Thanks for reading, though! Please leave any comments, questions, critique, etc. that you might have.

Thanks again, and have a great day!

The ocean surges through my soul
Eroding at my sanity
Just staring at the waves all day
Who needs any more company

The seafoam is my fragile life
    It’s saline spray, my tears
I’m alone but never lonely
    The waters drown my fears

The years I’ve spent on yonder’s edge
This jagged cliff I call my home
I’ll age and fade away out here
Forgotten in a sodden tomb

No person tells me what to do
    My life’s in my control
But Mother Earth is like our god
    My respect’s irrevocable

Oh, I never miss the busy life
The woes of cruel humanity
For all the consoling I need
Is in the blue song of the sea

    It took me a whole 1 year, 5 months, and 2 days to realize that I wrote "its" as "it's". And the grammar police side of me won't let me forget...

    Thank you! I wanted the title to embody the essence of this poem.

    This poem caught my eye because its title is the same one I named my blog, haha! I like the melancholy of this piece, and when I read it it gives off this beauty... the title actually really fits your piece. :)
