I Am Washed Away By The Ocean’s Tears by Joanna Maharis

I am washed away by the

ocean’s tears whose tides

build up and send me crashing

into your shoreline.

I unfold my heart until it bleeds

out for lost treasures stored

up in my mind bringing

about the longing of summer

on a cold winter’s night.

Sanguine is the music flowing

in streams of my timeless visions

when your parade gathers crowds

of onlookers watching me sink

deeper and deeper in my stipend grave.

Shouting is the wind in my ears with

its heart full of rage for the hours of

foul striking its pulse.

Tender is the red rose whose velvet

flesh soothes the burn which followed.

I’m encumbered by the music of my time,

and let the past fade into me like the

dust in the wind.

For this is the musicality life brings

forth when the lion is close to death.

In his whirlwind, the storm clears,

leaving nothing but destruction.

The everlasting moonlight is encroached by

your whims hovering the earth,

but all eyes are watching from just beyond

their graves holding out their hands to lift

me out of the rut my heart is drowning in.
