All of the Ocean

poetry collection

He was all of the Ocean

and she was drowning in a single drop

Louise Alexandra Erskine

Take me beyond the break water

let me dive beneath the surface

swimming through your ocean

until exhausted

I wash upon the sand

Louise Alexandra Erskine

She was alone

Lost out at sea

&

broken by the storm

But

As each wave battered her

It bought her closer to the shore

Louise Alexandra Erskine

He was her Ocean

She was his Moon

&

Together they changed the Tide

Louise Alexandra Erskine

Meet me at the shoreline

let the ocean kiss our feet

Take me by the hand

& lead me

My naked soul

Cleansed in the water with you

Louise Alexandra Erskine

Safe in your harbour

I forgot

A ship belongs on the ocean

Louise Alexandra Erskine
