The Tide

Do I ask for too much,

If I’m asking for a little space .. 
To exhale the misunderstood feelings I harbor, 

To put them at bay.

To simply spend a little time with;  



and I. 

To know the storms that I create, turmoiling my inner side. 

To feel the sand between my fingers and rummage through it like it’s treasure. 

To sit in the rain and drown myself, unburdening the thunder and sorrow. 

To run on grass or the earth, just with my bare feet;

to feel it’s warmth, it’s cool, calm, collective nature, whilst I run to exhume the heat. 

To sit beside a silent shore and dip my feet to sense it,
It’s cold blue surface,

hiding a deeper tide than it actually mirrors. 

Do I ask for too much,

when I just want to spend some time,

with the trees, the sea, the sand, the sky, the sun, the birds, the rain, the storm, 

or even me.

For they seem to know me,
Understanding my silences with which I speak.

The pauses I take with hesitation, pondering with great length with the words I say, 

Do I ask for too much;

when I just want to be me.

    1. Thank you ever so much dear, I’ve tried my best to incorporate the feel and sense of nature. Yes there is, nature is a friend of ours, which only helps us, but unfortunately in our busy lives we overlook it and don’t have time for it.
      I appreciate your lovely feedback.
      Thank you ever so much for stopping by, it’s greatly appreciated. 💐


    1. That’s beautiful to hear, nature is therapeutic if we allow ourselves to spend some quality time with it.

      It even helps to calm you and even taking out the negative feelings or sadness and replacing it with peace and calmness.
