What I can't Live without

The waves role by, one by one

the sun kisses my skin with it’s warm beams, 

I am stuck, not just on this refuge 

but stuck with nothing but my thoughts in a whim

I have no distraction, what more could I want?

Hello are you there? I need you, you yes you!

No I’m fine, I am alone with my thoughts. 

I think, and I think some more.

The breeze blows and the sand between my toes 

Hey I hear you out there! 

No I don’t need anything, it’s me and me alone.

When the ship crashed, and the captain yelled,

“Grab what you need” 

little did I know, I couldn’t live without Love.
