I waved to the waves as they crept closer to the cliff’s edge
Exposing their churning white teeth .
Their clashing drenched my face and hair from the foggy spray
Which covered the area like a shawl from heaven
I assumed the look of a soggy wet dog, dripping, in the face of the wind
Black clouds gripped the sky crawling along it’s blue hue
They pelted over each other as if in a race towards where….
The end of time?
In the howling wind I heard the voice of my ancestors
Beckoning me to step forward and yet…..
The old man Sea knew his job
I was mesmerized by his embrace
Covered in his soft, wet kisses and
Floating in his power,and warmth
As he reached out for his final embrace, I awoke
From his overwhelming, salty breath
And begged him to let me go
For I thirsted for a breath of life
I was not his Queen or his wife.
He had many already
I saw his face and it took command
Lovingly enshrining me on a pedestal of his devotion.
He was cunning and sharp
What do you want……..he whispered in my ear
What do you want????
And as I screamed NOT YOU!!!!
He hurled me out onto the shore
In a ragged torn heap as he does all his rejects.
To be collected by scavengers
A Lady's Life.
