(j) 4 (General) An Intense Desire - Poem by Renu Rakheja a.k.a Tranquil Ocean

I have this intense desire
To sing the song of the waves
As they crash into the rocks
Splashing foam into my caves

Walk barefoot on the sand
Let the rolling water kiss my feet
Wash away all that I am
Dancing to its beat

Swim out deep in the ocean
Carrying nothing, bare in the skin
Shedding all the layers
Washing away the sins

Getting lost in your solitude
Vastness envelops and I get submerged
No longer do I know who I am
And with you I get merged
