Poetry: Forever Free
Please read and enjoy the work of a talented writer.
come with me, out to sea
only there can we be free
do not despair, let out your air
float with me, inside the sea
take my hand, for what we stand
in love and loss, this is our cost
swallow deep, the salty sea
drink it up, and sink with me
one last breath, one last look
upon the love, whose life I took
out to sea, forever free
my love and me
Note: I wrote this poem about characters in my first novel. The lovers are trapped in a hurricane on a barrier island in the south.
