listening to the sea

Click here to hear the poet read his words:


sitting on the sand
listening to the sea
looking at the sky
eating a clementine

thinking of the past
contemplating the now
dreaming of the future

remembering your smile
missing your embrace
longing for your touch
aching at your loss
regretting oh so much

wishing things were different
wishing you were here
wishing you’d come back
just wishing

    Very haunting and sad. The repetition of wishing effectively adds to the somber mood.

    Sad and beautiful in one.

    Jenne has put it so well. A sublime and haunting piece.

    Beautifully read and beautifully sad.
    The heartache in the words and in the voice.
    The structure of the ‘wishing’ at the end of each verse, building up to the repetition in the last verse, and the final ‘just wishing’ … it works so well in creating the mood.
