Sea of Dreams

You leave me wanting more

yet cowering with fear

 in the dark corners of my mind

 where your intensity has invaded my thoughts

like the perfect treacherous storm

with wild waves of passion

 engulfing and receding in rapid succession

 leaving me breathless and struggling to hold on to my lifeline

but flailing on the verge of this uncharted island

 in the vast and beautiful sea of lonely dreams

 where I see the ominous clouds in your eyes

 but the water is as liquid fire

 so dive into me

and gently take hold

 of my fragile heart

and pull me into your safe harbor

kicking and screaming all the way

 until we are both sucked into the undertow

 of the sweet ethereal eternal bliss

to soothe our tortured souls

 and lie suspended in time

 for your breath cannot exist outside of me

 and I must breathe you to survive

and there is nowhere to run

and there is nowhere to hide

in this mockery of co-existence

 so take me now

take me down

 deeper and deeper

 into the warm and glistening sea

 entering the deepest darkest realm

where there is no end

and there is no beginning

and we must breathe one another

 into the miraculous entity

devoid of sanity

 that is

You and I

About sharonsharinginsights

Namaste'! I write poetry, stories, essays, reviews, editorials, screenplays, get the idea! I love to write. I graduated from UI&U in Vermont, U.S. with BA in Writing and Literature with a concentration in Women's Studies. I was chosen and interviewed as local artist for my writing on local online college magazine HOWL (circa 2003). My writings have been published in several genres and I have won numerous awards for my poetry. I am desirous of having my own collection of poetry and/or other writings published in my OWN book. I am passionate about women's issues, romance, love and a great number of benevolent causes. I am pretty passionate about almost anything that is NOT mundane or boring. I write from my soul (cliche' I know). Most of my work has been published and/or copyrighted (all either or both). My goal, again, is to publish a book of poetry, short stories, a novel, novellas, another song (collaborating with someone who writes music...hello, out there?)....OK more later, and thank you for checking me out!
