O my gracious seas
alive your make-ups changed your
lace again those of us who knew you don't
even know your name is it cause you’ve lost
another lover don’t any understand how
to touch you with that special flame
how you hide your secret well
I can’t see your not the
blame but O ocean
sea are your lips still
as lily white do you still
bloom and roll o’er all ‘round
and through Pixie light O my lovely
ocean lady you took me when I was so very

fair are the other waves that we met still there the
same as the ones before do they still roll to your
welling flames or have you taught them how
to dance another staying up for luscious
nights or did they die in summers

rising covers when they
woke to find your
make-up

smeared all over.



 If I could paint a portrait, of this life in which I've led, and somehow sketch a story, of the visions in my head, I'd start out with a canvas, stretched tightly in a frame, and in the bottom corner, I'd leave room to sign my name.  (Michelle A. Bartley)
