take me to the shore
where seagulls cry among rocks
taste the salty air

There once was a woman
-- a baker, a chef -- claimed by many
to be.. a liv-ing god-dess, but she.. was jus-s-s-st ..an-artist;
however, far---- ...beyond, the rest.  Each one of her morsels...
individual masterpieces... with individual, homemade-auras.

Her pastries, her candies, her honey
-- oh-so sweet -- her cake, with her frosting...
She once-produced.. such irresistible treats.
Those sugar-dusted desserts ...enriched with her cream:
this woman created that which most only dream..

Although, as people do, she started to cry.

Into her mixing-bowl -- falling ...from her eyes --
..tears did travel.  ‘Tis said even deeper...
-- outside of the brim of the bowl --
..tis said they dripped downwards, dampened her soul -
that they tenaciously trickled, rusting her forge..
&.. inner-anvil.

Not-yet fully bitter, yet still bittering-sweet...
Regardless, results, showed that there was nothing honeyed ...left..
baked, or drizzled passionately to a T..
                ...to ...eat.

For her sweets no longer edible now, but rather overly salted, instead...
They taste like she sweat & sweat & sweat, & then stood ..upside-down,
& wrung all the sweat into her mixing-bowl from her head.

“I am sorry,”  she cried.  “It is not my fault."

She echoed,  "I am human ....only human.”

What was once~sugared, leaked now:
...nothing, but water & salt.

Haven't gone through and italicized that which should be italicized.  Apologies.

Being in love with your best friend's partner is like revelling in the destruction of a tsunami.
You watch the waves roll and weave their way through the closing sky and yet you stand boldly on the beach front -
Arms open and eyes closed
The feeling of cracking wide inside you,
but you're a masochist, and the pain is your drug,
the only antidote to the touch of
The forbidden fruit.

Being in love with your best friend's partner is like tearing open all your bandaged wounds, just to let the salt rub them dry
again and again and

#love   #sadness   #forbidden   #sea   #salt   #bestfriend   #wounds  

I am trying
but trying doesn't make
deep wounds heal any faster,

and you rubbing salt in them
does not help them to
hurt any less.

~~ From another time, where things seemed much worse without anything being that different. ~~

i remember the soft sand
that never burnt my feet
because you were with me.

i remember the calm ocean
when the waves were soft
on the shore we got lost.

i remember the salt smell
that had felt so cleansing
you were my best friend
the ocean, you, the sand.

i remember the sun’s reflection
that rippled with the water
and your eyes were never brighter.

i remember the shells we found
waist deep in water or just wandering
with you i had never felt calmer.

but the night was cold
while our hands were warm
as we floated in the starry water.

the wolf and the ocean's love story - innocence (part two)

In these youth that only ditch,
There is a thread loosely stitch,
They gave a name for the glitch.

They just feel so entangled,
If I could satiate the deranged,
I would have felt happier & loved.

Not in the slightest her fault,
The fault is in my safety vault,
I can't protect it by adding salt.

She had her personality affected,
On the borderline of love she was,
She might get better when matured.

So I will wait for her to grow up,
Because mangoes are sour unripe,
So she might not repent her flurry.

Even though she is upset now,
I should patiently wait for her,
Us both together, life be wow!

She suffers a borderline personality disorder,
And I suffer its deranged consequences,
But I have not given up yet on her.

Of course, it was a relationship,
And every ship sails in waters,
Salt gets dissolved in water.

So she got bored when the salt subdued.
She is beautiful, young and youthful.
She shows the Borderline Personality Disorder.

It is marked by quick changes in opinions.

In BPD, people have dramatic changes in their interpersonal relationships, self-image, moods, and behaviour. Borderline personality disorder usually becomes evident in adolescence or early adulthood and becomes less common with age.

And her BPD is to be blamed for my loss.

Be careful
Some times it's hard to tell salt from sugar,
I have found,
People are like that too.

slowly pouring down
as all the fragments of time, space,
and every dimension,
collide between every tear
that falls from your lover's eyes.

is nothing
but salty water.

She -- the black -- which had salted him,
as well as every single one of his wounds.
But he - be the white, now blotching her;
he be the white, peppered now
on her skin.

Many call some situations & life in general, "grey or gray." Others see things for as they are, "black & white."
