The Tranquil Sea

Standing alone in the tranquil sea I’m awaiting my love’s arrival She’s been travelling for weeks moving away from the sun Yet, Only to journey to its light once more I sit on a moon rock Barely feeling the sharp edges as they cut me deep When she finally arrives I’ll swoop her off herContinue reading “The Tranquil Sea”
