Broken-A Duet with Ax




On the current she rides,
By the rise of the tide,
Wishfully wanting,
Waiting to see,
Swallowed by the grip of the sea

By the winds that howl across the sky,
With a chill that streaks with a cry,
Sails filling,
Straining to be,
Lifted, set free

By emotion swept up on shore,
The waves flailing,
Upon watery bank,
Breathing life into my fragility,
And silencing the land,
The sway of the ocean,
Summons to release

With a scream that would surge,
Space that travels,
Below and above,
Twirling hurricane force,
The sway of my heart,
Now beats and beats

Like the wings of an angel,
Trapped on the seaboard,
Shattering feathers,
On salt and brine,
Patterned, on the rise and fall,
Wavering, to the pulse,
And as it all tumbles down,
I’m lost to the sound,
Of our hearts beating as one

With one final leap, faith,
Extends a hand to lead, me,
Into the arms of the one, you,
Who, was always there from the start,
Behold my eyes that bleed, flooding,
Bled, so red would skew the colour of right,
White, the purity of truest loves light,
A life, left to wander without sight,
Fused with the hope of this, new night.

  3. Dreams and hopes are like unrealistic realism. Related to oxymorons.

    Some of your used metaphors are like oxymorons, at least partly.

    It explains why reading poems like this one is mind expanding and so enriching.

    Both my thumbs up in the air, Jen (and Ax)!
