Somewhere between the tears,
And smiles,
Your colors burn,
Your emotions,

And rising,

As if a stormy surf’s crest,
Foamy with life,
Building from need,
Longing for rest,
Yearning for peace….

So needing a soft,
White sand beach
To roll upon,
Releasing turmoil,
Letting go of pain,
Securing safety,
Washing up on my shores,
Finding home.

Your impassioned worries,
Held in my arms.

Your turbulent fears,
Soothed in my whispers.

Your windswept dreams,
Honored in my heart…

Beating only for you.

Let go,
Beautiful woman.

Let your tempest unfurl,

I am here to love you.

  4. i went to an interesting take on the Tempest 2 weeks ago. your poem brought back the memories of uncertainty and wanting to find a safe place to unleash the roiling waves in a soul. wonderfully expressed, befits the title eloquently
