Out of My Reach

Out of My Reach


This is a cold I cannot withstand

I will the wind to cease

I’m here alone in this coral sand

Longing for stillness and peace


I look to the horizon

Where the ocean is unconquerable

And any sense of my control is 


Out of My Reach


There is a sadness inside of you

It reads like a tragic script                              

Over and over the scenes are replayed

And you never break free of its grip


Prayers for redemption

Prose full of dreams and regret

Ring hollow when the poet is


Out of My Reach



And the waves crash 

Again, and again

And you call from the undertow                                


I rush in 

I always do                    

But this time I choose to let go


I don’t want a life where I catch my breath

I want a life where I breathe  

Where love and forgiveness 

No longer remain


Out of My Reach

Out of My Reach


Love and forgiveness no longer remain 

Out of My Reach

Out of My Reach
