I must know the ocean
With every breath I breathe
Not just tender sunsets
But the roaring seas
I must go so deep
Almost scared to find what I need
All those mighty waves
Crashing over me

It’s not enough
To sit on my balcony
If I know I could travel where
The ocean is all I see
I’ll leave the land I came from
To follow where she leads
‘cos she met my every question
And that cry for destiny

You wouldn’t call me a fool
If you’d seen what I see
When I look at the ocean
I know she’s there for me
Her steady, constant waves
Never cease to instruct me
As she leads, I will follow
All the way to the deep

In Between Me and You
I am speechless,
my voice screams alone,
you are not mine,
and I am not yours
This is all a dream,
In between you and me,
we search for each other
on the odd seashores,

Mountains and fields are in between me and you,
Rivers and oceans are in between me and you,
Stars are dying in between me and you,
and Gods are crying in between me and you
when the sky is breaking in two,
the all universe holds back us fade away,
in between me and you, are centuries
of waiting for the two dreamers to fly.

I beg you to live happily,
What’s in between you and me,
will ever stay,
you’ll always be the light in my dream,
come in my dreams when you can,
I will be happy to see you again,
how you live happily every day of your life,
smiling with the sun and flying with the birds in the sky,
come in my dreams when you remember me,
I implore you to live happily.

In between you and me,
You are not mine,
and I am not yours
This is all a dream,
In between you and me,
the all universe is waiting
for us to fall asleep.

if we sorrow rivers
for the ones who
wanted us bare naked

does our spirit drench an ocean
for the ones who wanted
our bare naked soul?
He has tread his path alone
He will tread his path alone
You know he hates name and fame
He wishes to remain unknown
For You too are Unknown
He wishes to go towards You
Please don't stop his heartbeats at this juncture
He wishes to fulfill his some important responsibilities
Later if You willed he wishes to be a wanderer
Moving across lands and oceans
You know he doesn't  even wish to put the burden of his death on anyone
He just wishes to get lost and vanished in unknown trails to be one with You

How do I swim across oceans
when I have only taken lessons
in drowning.
Nathalie Sep 7
The mountains echo
Hearts longing
To be heard
Through the symphony
In which the depth
Mirrors the rivers
Of emotions that flow
Through one’s
Connection to the oceans
Of this world

Make believe
In a worthy heart
That oceans dance like flame
In the blue winds of the East
That memories remain resplendent
In the movies that replay in our minds
A worthy beat
I had a desire to travel
across the ocean and
explore the deserts.
But how long
will I scrape your memories
to fly with my severed wings?

Will you help me
in getting the ashes of this body
so that when the storm comes,
I can whisper my last words
and travel far away,
drifting for eternity
around the globe.
We were both born in the same, ethereal motion.
Endlessly searching for the banks of a distant ocean.

You are the peace of mind that for years, I’ve yearned for.
You are the gentle waves that caress my endless shore.

Sing to me, my love, your swansong song against the skyline.
Embrace me, my dear, so that our stars begin to align.

The sand beneath our feet, and the wind in our hair,
As if you were the answer to my continuous prayer.

If in some beautiful way, you’ve brought what the stars foretold,
Then no one can ever take the spot in my heart that you hold.

And in this life, or in the next, I’ll have you lay forever with me.
When I look at the soul you possess, I see nothing but eternity.
For you.
