Safe Place

There is a place I long to go
A place where I can be
Within myself
A place to forget you

I want to let the waves
Over me, wash away
The pain – heal me

The softness of the sand beneath
My feet, a comfort
You could never give me
Only I could give myself

There is a place I long to go
My solitude, free from you


Inspired by last night’s storm

All around the storm rages on
But not as thunderous
As the beating of my heart
Refusing to give up
Like you gave up on me
