sitting on the sand
head resting in hand
single tear rolling down my cheek

staring out at the sea
drowning in what will never be
tumultuous waves mirror my soul

biting wind so bitter
lip begins to quiver
heart aches to feel your warmth

tide lapping to and fro
unsure which way to go
internal storm ferociously raging
clouds cover the sun
as I turn to you and run
away from this storm I'll be free

What is a lover?

Thank you Joan (@joangillen) for inviting me to participate in the #PoemUpChallenge!
A lover is many different things to many different people. Here are a few of my thoughts...

A lover is a friend.
Someone who shares your laughter, dries your tears
stands with you as you face your fears.

A lover is an angel.
Someone who travels to the depths of your darkest mind
takes your hand, leading you into the light

A lover is a poet.
Someone whose words make your spirits soar
uplifts your heart, transforms your soul.

A lover is an artist.
Someone who paints your flesh with the heat of desire
every caress setting your canvas on fire

A lover is a guide.
Someone who leads you to unknown ecstasies
explores hidden passions, fulfils your fantasies.
