Wading in the water
Amidst the raging monsoon
My feet are loosely planted
Beneath the bleeding half-moon

Emulsifying with the ocean
Gusts of strong wind command me
I abandon all control
& go the way of the cobalt sea

Braiding with the rising tide
An unruly soul finds composure
Tender seaweed hugs my thighs
I've become the ocean's cynosure

She tells of her quiet secrets
In bright tongues of sun coral reef
She sways her hips slowly
Washing me with a wave of relief

Neighboring blue tang pass me by
Bringing with them a gentle heat
A subtle, healing tune
A song my heart used to beat

The blue fish dare me to dance
& I become lost in the current's pull
Washed ashore I gaze to the sky
The once sad moon is now yellow & full

Rob Rutledge Jan 2016
She gazed out long and far,
Past half closed curtains  
And dozing, docile cars.
Witness to a world double glazed
Dampened by a passing rain.
Sound drowned still by fragile,
Stained glass pane.

Skies lay grey, like every other day,
Shrubs shrug and trees sadly sway.
She feels for the trees,
(And to an extent the shrub)
They're not so different from you or I.
We all plant roots, grow, love?

Thoughts disturbed by a startled dove,
Flew the coup, done, had enough,
Rose as Icarus toward the sun.
Basked in light of new found freedom.

Never heard the hunters gun.
When you were there with me
We were dancing with glee

Late night talks, making each other blush,
smiling, laughing were our things
Everyday which gave me new wings

Thinking about our love i flew-up
Without taking any back-up

Then a day came when you were not there
That day even a sun felt hemisphere

I was there sitting alone in darkness
And blaming why *** is so heartless

I texted and missed you a lot
But silence and despondency were what all i got

I am waiting
and I'll keep waiting for
my beloved to come back
If you see her
please tell her that she left someone
who is waiting for her on the half track.
