'And as the waves return to the sea, so the words give way to silence.'
Write a poem on a theme of your choosing, that concludes with this line.
A man the age of 24,
A man who will take no more,
Unbeknownst, steps through a door.
In an endless hell,
Sex will keep things sweet,
But escape remains a distant feat,
A broken heart, a heavy beat.
The hands of fallen, the gaze of all,
He stands tall, over bodies sprawled.
Yesterday he took a life,
Laid the man down and removed the knife,
Death’s taste lingered, bland and cold as ice.
Nothing left to give to me,
I’ve died trying to save me,
I’ve died trying to save we,
Many places I could be,
Wasted time without the sight to see,
I walk the beach to feel free,
Capturing the waves before they flee,
And as the waves crash the sea,
I began to lose proper guidance,
So my words give way to silence....
Chosen is he in winning
swam he made it to
The shores of the Great IAM kan
Trust Israelite Hebrew man
that's a must righteous
& as the waves return
To the sea so the words do
give way to silence...
The waves were high and words on the street was they can print
And print and print and print they did
Naked they were, to show the world they gave it all , in return for the paper with the stamp, of the kings of their land
Tired they were but they can still go on , it seem it wasn’t enough for mother nature to relax
As silence is all they want but chaos is all they get
I saw it in a dream...
Depression is a funny thing.
It comes in large crashing waves,
then settles into to a captivating,
One moment you are getting pulled out to sea, and the next you are floating.
All is quiet,
and you feel comfortable,
bathing in your numbness.
As the waves return to the sea,
the words give way to silence....
The outline of your jaw
tells me stories I spend days questioning.
Your tongue, my mind
makers of their own demise.
All I ever ask for is honesty-
When the dark parts of you
encased your spine
leaving you without a backbone
I was still here, holding you up.
But you chose deceit instead of honor.
These lies they spill from your mouth
like the trickling of a well
and I am consumed by the ...
The sun sets in the West,
While the moon raises in the East.
What do we see next,
Do we sit for our supper feast?
The sky shines a deep blue
The house dimly lit
It’s just me and you
In front of a fire, coffee we sip.
I open to you as you open to me.
Sitting together enjoying the night’s brilliance.
And as the waves return to the sea,
So the words give way to silence.
The men sing their shanties
Unaware of the looming monster
By the time the lookout can issue the warning
The beast is already too close
Through the howling wind
And washing-machine waves
The shanties give way to shouts
Frantic sailors fighting for their lives
As quick as it came
The storm passes on
Having wiped the surface clean
Those who were singing, now sinking
And as the waves return to th...
