Oh! Bringer of water, thou hast lost me! Why must I cry for help that fades Into a deeper abyss I flee
You used to whisper into my ear sweet nothings I love you, I would never hurt you, Leave you, I will only and always love you.
Dirty feet and white sheetsLovers down and oceans foundTravel with me and discoverWhere we are and where we are meant to be
A baptism. Though maybe not. A popular fear, I call it my home.   Diving in I feel alive Letting bubbles play chase They reach for the sky, I reach for the depths.  
I'm that weird girl that sits in the back The quieter you are the less attention you attract Though I'm not the only one who would rather it dark At times I find those with that same unique heart  
This is the land I walk uponEntranced by its natureI heard the rain fall
Emotions share Many Similarites With water, both are Vital
And the whippoorwill twilled,  While over rocks water spilled, Green grass in the fields blew, And sweet lipped Mocking Birds o'er head flew. 
The river flows backwards
you think there's an ocean of things  you've yet to learn about me but there's really not that much   it's more like a pool in that  it isn't so infinite or mysterious but still waters run deep
Turning through the world never having and ending and never controled.
Ode to Arizona on a Hot Summer's DayWritten by Adam M. SnowOh sweltering is summer's day of bliss,
I have learned to appreciate water for it’s omnipotence   
Pitter patter pitter patter The rain falls so softly As I sit and drink my coffee Thinking to myself how peaceful that day would be Sitting there writing poetry Sinking in my chair
You make me look forward to the morning. That crystalline smile like a sunrise resting against still waters. I get lost in your calm and collarbone kisses seep down into my soul like dawn dew.
You have to love me for who I become what I create, what I say, what I see, what I give, not what I take. You cannot love me for what I need what I want, what I’ve been given.
A shot fired across the decka weakened hull. A turning tide.Well, all our anchors hang on chainsand dangle off our changing minds.
Just breathe in and out and again.This smog that clouds our mind-placing us in the realm of Negativity-will pass.
Trembling, he sits and waits for the news. Something terrible happened. His mother had called him in the middle Of a chemistry test, His favorite class. “Tyler,” she had said “I need you, come home.”
Blood is thicker than water
Water rushing through the mountain valleys dragging every stone not firmly rooted,  drowning just to resurface in an unknown region. And before long, the current sweeps the few, back under its brute force again.
I am tethe
Game's over. Quick Get me some water! Ah! You've got ice too? Thanks!   My sweaty palms touch the glass, Feeling the freezing water with my hands
Ever so thirsty Yearning for one single drip That will never come
Keeping these thoughts from driving me crazy, I watch the twist and turns of reality and my life just passing by,
Hands reac
Flitting through the trees She runs Like the quicksilver moon High in the clear night sky   He passes through the dark trees Striding onward with some mysterious purpose

My true love My elegant goddess
The world isnt fair, If i could change on thing it would be the share, Many humans die every day from lack of water, and our Earth's sun continues to make it hotter. People suffer every day,
I've yet to swim in the darkest depths, for I never want to stay on the surface.
One time, i wrote a poem On a piece of paper with  No lines. And i cried, Smudging all the little letters. The ants drowned by Saltwater. They thrashed and thrashed and thrashed,
For about an hour or so I sat there in the shower With the water turned up to fire. I let the water douse me in its flames Until my skin burned red. I gave myself permission to cry, Yet no tears came.
So I walk aimlesslyWithout aim   Where did I come from?Well, that’s a trivial matter  
Miles of walking The privileged get in steps
❤ The warmth burning my skin
Everyone knows what happens
It came upon a dream one night,
Food, water and shelter That's it.. That's what I would focus on If I had the chance to change the world. I'm serious, all other issues aside   Food, water and shelter would be my key topics
Learning to swim,
people and water drops are all the same, one day we shine, one day we are dull some are big
The sound of the crashing waves Keeps me at bay With a pound of thunder As the sound gets greater I wait until later to come around   The sun goes down I wonder off to the crystal waters
            She went for a swim. When the sun was high and vicious and scalded the ground she walked on, she went for a swim.
Thirst, irrelevant right?Kind of like the air in the night.Not noticed unless exposed.Whether it's dry lips or undisclosed.A feeling seldom metuntil you're out of sweat
Closed my eyes Heart rate slowing down I begin to hear my own beating heart   The waves move to my heartbeat Inhale, my lungs expand Just to smell the salt of the water   To my surprise
Have you e
Something told me to take a walk.  I listened.  I grabbed the dog and out we went Down to the woods where the wild things live.
Paddling so hard from the water wall behind. Too slow and i fall. Then I tumble and I roll to submerge to the unknown.
The aquatic garden, when seen from space, is vast, mystical, and blue It has many unique, sea creatures living in it too Some burrow, some float, some dart from side to side
Rainy, cold sharks quietly desire a rough, rough reef.Why does the wave wave?
Deep breaths drawing in nothingRunning out of airOnly now starting to panicWondering what went wrongNot able to struggle much longerIt starts to get blurryNo longer strugglingGrey eyes close 
All will be awaken in this light And one day all shall rise from the lands great precipices And into the water above them all
Born of water, And of ice, Warm exterior to suffice. Raised from dust, Breath of life, Born into eternal strife. Set up walls,
This thing of love, of loving and being loved. It consumes me in the gentlest of ways,  softly washing over me until I've been covered up; a blissful drowning. I've become willing to risk hitting a shelf 
Speak now of your fallacies, to you I will not judge. Tell me all that concerns you and to you I will listen. You pull me down into the water into the depths of Hell- but these places I know familiar
The briny breathes of the Humber welcomed my parents to the its shores, and left their cheeks flushed along with their hair unkempt.
Dream of me in the depths of your despair, and a beacon of what once was will appear. Dream of me at your happiest moments, and wish that I could be happy too. Dream of me when you are angry,
He waded through the water anxious, like flame in the wind.  The molecules engulfed his feet  entirely, washing his sin.  The night's stars were gleaming bright, crying out to him. 
inside a passenger seat breathing in a static driveleaving rolling hills to the ocean's waveslet's slip into the sands.hide inside our skinand dive deep.
Lace up running shoes, Hit the trail; Lost in thought, Discover yourself
nocufsoin Confusion, oh the deep waters of confusion, It swallows you whole and stirs up your thoughts. You feelings drop down to the bottom, dark and sandy,
The waves lieBehind a wall of whiteDashing away before they'veEven begun to hang theAlbatross.   
We cannot live without it It brings bottled hope to the days of Sunburns and sweat It is our food, bodies, miracles, and love   Listen closer
I'm what the doctor ordered. I can fix you up no matter what you got. I am always there for you, miles away I surround you, fall on you everyday.
Water Clear, Wet Freezing, Chilling, Soaking Swimming, Soaking, Drying, Walking Warming, Heating, Drying Green, Dry Land  
My mouth waters like the demon I struggle with becoming I think one thing is right so I jump into its fire Fuck my personal desire I'm stuck trying to work for you and in the progress I've stepped backwards into the second circle Goddamn I want to
  The words envelope me, Comfort me, Free me, And let me speak without saying a word. Each sylabl ringing, clearing my mind, and rolling off my tongue with every annouciation.
I see the serene water gently drifting by, As the sun shines bright where I lie, Peace is around all around where I see,  Yet there is a problem lingering with me, My heart feels frantic and tries to escape,
         Bare Handed Catch Water Splashing in my face, Bouncing on the waves, Going light speed behind a motor boat Soaring like the eagle Swish, Swish, splash, going side to side
I think about you when you're not by my beside You live miles away so that's almost all the time Even worse we're going to college separate ways  Both hoping the relationship will never fade
Under the cold salty ocean Bright scaley fish are plunging against the west wind drfit The sound of crashing waves is to music to your ears The oceasn water is azured as the clear blue sky
Wisps of air pranced through the blades of grass under the creek And danced atop the dorsal fins of the creatures of the deep And found under the surface of the water
That perplexing blueKnocks the air out of youjust by lookingMakes you breathe inSalt foamsFeeling grandyet shrunken listeningto the tossing clap of the waves  Waves like mountains
I.Capture the sea,the swimming wind,the blue and the greena lovely stranger’s eyes, liquidthey seduce, lull, glitter.Breathe gently into greenuntil they are like blueribs upon the water
I watched my motherfrom under water. Therewas a perfume risingoff the morning sea.She sang slow andbreathed it all in. She watched my heartslowly softening.
Sandy beaches Peaceful, content Tickling your feet as you walk along Waves crash building up power Crushing seashells till they are no more than Sand You stoop to retrieve one
And they said that everything about you was perfection and that made me believe that you were the perfect guy for me. You took me places and held my hand, then I fell for you and you became my best friend.
It all started with just one word, hey. Hey, let's learn about poetry.   Poetry, the Key to opening Life's Door, The Key to freeing the unknown within. Poetry, the Key.  
Well, well, well. We can't live without. Though, sometimes you're clear. Sometimes you're not.  Sometimes you're cold. Sometimes you're hot. Simply, nearly one billiion need you.
Water water everywhere pull me away don't let me stay Float away don't know to where   eyes closed the waters cool bring me away from all the cruel leave me in safety enclosed  
Threatening waves crash over me, they pound the life out of me.   I hear what seems to be screams in the distance,   But it’s me.
It’s forever been a struggle to meet in the middle, The waves want to overtake the sand, But the sand wants to hold their own Constantly battling to have control
I raise my glass to my face in thought. Evaporating from my mind, I, in oblivion: the paramount essence. The essence of what? I think. It escapes me. I think. The quintessence of something. Of what?
When I run, I am free, my chains are broken. My shoes are like the13th Amendment; I am no longer a slave to society. When I run, no one can own me, the road becomes my empowerment. Strength, Struggle, Satisfaction.
The water was clean, the water was clear The water was felt and fell over her Through her hair and to the nape of her neck It ran down her shoulders, onto her back Clear, clean, and cold it crept to her soul
To the lakes, Oceans, Waterfalls, Oceans you fill with purity The fish and sea creatures swim You give us all you can give To the waves that move on your surface Down riverbanks you flow
We sank our toes into the sand beneath the water While I told him how my father was like his father's father.
The night’s young but the tide is high The black skies that petrify Lying on the shore I let the tide engulf me The ice cold embrace of the water drags me down Sinking like a stone I submit to the water’s grip
Exercise is good for you, Blood, sweat, and tears, will get you through the deepest blue and fit throughout the years, you may not like it at the start but then you get addicted,
A cold winter night Oh such a beautiful sight The gentle breeze Yet you never freeze Coldness against the cheek Wet grass beneath the feet Chills down the spine In a straight line
I want to feel the ocean breeze, I want to feel the light of the moon As we lie together on the sand, I want to hear nature's melodious tune.
Above the river's bank rising slowly in the sky, casting a reflection upon the water. Saving the world from total darkness the moon finds its place among the stars
Hands drift through always cool You a lake, ocean, puddle, or pool Through your touch transcends a calm Your current touches every palm Water moves against me smooth The true fountain of youth
The sun it shines, regardless, The grass it grows, oblivious, The water it sits, fathomless. The moon it reflects, lovingly, The tree it stands, determinedly, The sand it moves, impulsively.
Intensity, intuition, in love Intellect, practicality, and ration are all of thee above Passion, emotions, and feelings are what drives us Lying,deceiving, and cheating is what divides us
We walked by night, dropped our troubles As though the water we tried to avoid cleansed us, But it didn't, did it? We walked on in conversation or in silence, And either way I felt privileged to be by your side.
Beast of the drum. Songs to hum. Songs to last, memories that pass. Sunny skies, waves passing by. Blistering heat brings a tear to my eye. Sorry I cannot stay, Stray, Runaway.
Blending together, they are. Like reflections on water. Memories, like a cookie jar. These thoughts they slaughter.
Water Is odorless and tasteless Formless and shapeless but at the same time all shapes because water can shape shift (React and adapt to vibrations)
Rivers and oceans And lakes all around, Just search one of them And trash can be found. Water gets worse As time passes on, Just keep on polluting And your drinks will be gone.
They say A small stream carved The Grand Canyon Maybe that's why I'm so afraid of water Crumble (you're tired)
Oh how I wish that I could stay under the blue and beneath the waves, exploring secrets that remain unseen even by scientists in a submarine.
Her toes curl over the weathered wood. She watches the sun bounce off the waves, minnows swim peacefully below her. She looks across the lake, kids play and splash while botats speed by.
Pearls of drops are ours to count As graceful as they fall, So as to, later, try to mount The throne of pride o'er all.
I watch her shimmer and dance from the shoreline While the sunset adorns her in gold she’s calling so sweetly, my Aquamarine For our friendship is many years old
The water is a clear blue It warms and guides us On a path none travel. To rare adventures And dangerous tales, We travel this path And seek adventure From unknown territory.
I've fallen victim to the sea. Now I can't catch my breath, and I'm constantly reminded  of the unending wrath...
Silver lines trace down a foggy pane; Sliding, slipping through their descent. A cold night glare streams through, Showering the window with light Stunning images like dreams stand shimmering on a wall
Apples, chicken, peanut butter too, all these foods are good for you turkey, water, anything green, nourish your body, its a mean machine running, walking, lifting weights, ooo
Imagine this. You need to shower, but the water heater broke. You don't realize you can borrow your neighbors shower. And you're not entirely sure when the dang machine will be fixed.
The swaying of the trees Puts me at ease In the midst of anger The strong wind against my face Brings me to reality Realities of the world
The voice of the sea is severe-- scolding, rebuking, mocking, laughing at the soul who dares enter its sorrowful abyss. But who could resist a voice so enticing?
Across the boardwalk Over the dunes On the sand Near the water To the hotel
(poems go here) When I was young I gave my soul to the sea. Sometimes I will swear to you that the waves ebb and tide where my blood should be.
the edge of tide, the edge of reality. Water is a mirror of Ourselves, with no place to call home. Calm or Turbulent, we are still us.
White Shifty The Sand Allows my toes And foot as a whole To pass and Sink some Inches Down Setting Like the Tangerine sun As it slips away Past the edge
What does water taste like? I ask you “Nothing” is the only answer that’s true But how could this crazy fact be true Science can easily explain this to you
Stepping over that imaginary line between Suburbia And Darkness The woods are going to eat you up
I’ve bathed...
People love to tell you that “You are the captain of your own soul!” What they neglect to tell you Is that they are at the helm And should you hit an iceberg It is you who must go down with the ship.
My heart should be as large as the Grand Canyon. Love rushing through it like water, carving it out, squirming its way in, making it wider, deeper, more soulful. It should beat for those who love me,
On the dark cliffs full of shadows The river is rushing, the water crashing Headed towards the inevitable fall
Every other summer we travel to Michigan The landscape's so open and calm The beauty of the tall hills of sand The beauty of the freshwater lake
Stink like a bear stuck on a tree trunk Baby you smell like a nasty payment Wishing you had soap you couldn't buy Old bread in your Ice box Ted in your knee trunks Girl your boyfriend got a stinky job
