A Screaming sea-gull.. she cries.. she cries

By Tania


I fell in love at harbour bay…
Where broken grey skies wavered over all day..
the Sea-weed speckled shore line caught my eye
As the up-heaving ocean came to rise
Our crumbling footsteps they slowly died..
A screaming sea-gull she cried ..she cried



A String of bobbing buoys lay dead at sea
Chained to the seabed.. Swaying helplessly..
As I looked to the jagged cliffs that lay in the near
My lover in hand led me to the abandoned pier
As each wave crashed.. the next it died
A screaming sea-gull she cried… she cried


Surrounded by rocks that lay so corrupt
Eternally tormented by the oceans lust
a cool salty breeze cast herself into a gust
like an alluring mist throwing her cuss
And as I looked into my lovers eyes..
A screaming sea-gull she cried.. She cried


I fell in love at harbour bay..
Where broken grey skies wavered over all day..
And as I head down to the shore line once more
With only these salt wounds left to adore,
I look to the ocean and how livid she lies..
As a screaming sea-gull she cries.. she cries..

    this was beautifully sad.

    i love posts about oceans/ocean settings, doesnt matter what emotions they envoke, it always seems to make them float in an endless current, bravo kiddo!

  • A former member wrote: I love the sea-gull imagery...actually, I love ALL the imagery, but "as a screaming sea-gull she cries..she cries.." hits something deep within me. Excellent piece. ~*Beth*~

  • A former member wrote: well, even if you're undecided, I enjoyed it. The flow worked for me, as did your rythm... good write
