Still Loving You I Wait (Message in a Bottle)

Through endless nights I stare
Fateful decisions running endless
Haunting guilt carried on the mare
Tidal optimism crushed by crashing swells
Echoes of harrowing fright carried breathlessly
Wind ripped sheets, storm tossed rig
Cracks of sightless thunder, Flash of mocking lightning
In laughing blackness I dwell
Heart beating in rhythmic desire, Soul void of life
Cries unheard in unabated isolation
Shakenly I taste sweet salt of tears
I close my eyes and feel soft breathing
Long flowing hair so gold and pure
Skin wonderfully delicate and delightlful
Silently I wait, For an Eternity I wait
Our love will bring us back together

You wrote such a beautiful piece here about love/longing and placed it with the ocean. I think everyone can relate well. Keep up the good work.

Have a nice day.

Scott, loved the line "In laughing blackness I dwell". Despair always seems to mock our mourning. Powerful piece!
