Ocean Waves – a poem

“Ocean Waves”
a poem by Jeremy C Kester

What would the ocean whisper?
If it could talk to me?
Its waves as songs of glories old,
Spraying words upon my face.
Can I hear them today?
Not that I wish to beg.
My ears have fallen victim,
To echoes of pain,
of desperate pleas for release.
I want to be soothed again,
Like a gentle newborn cradled close.
Touch tingling through my faded skin,
My faded whole becoming so lost,
Lost in a whisper,
As it flows from my voice,
My lips.
I taste the ocean,
And I hear the tune my eardrums ring.
Is there a story to tell?
I wish to part myself in,
With the waves to cradle me.
I wish to be cradled,
I wish to be a whisper.
I wish to be the whisper,
That the ocean waves to me.
