Take me away
To a deserted beach
By a bay

Where problems can’t reach
And I don’t fear the rise of the day.

Take me away
I’m to tired to fight
There’s no more to say
I don’t want to fear the night

Take me away
Hold me in your arms
Keep the world at bay
Soothing me with your charms

Take me away
Where no more lies can reach me
Where dreams don’t decay
And joy is all I see

Take me away
To a beach by the bay
Where alcohol does not exist
Where the pain it reaps does not twist
My heart into tiny broken knots
Hope — Never to regain

Take me away; Give me peace

Take me away; give me silence

Take me away; where I never have to see self-destruction

Take me away; so I can breathe again

  1. There is no away –
    Only here
    Only this.
    The only harbor against the storm
    Is that strength within your soul.
    You are the beach.
    You are the refuge.
    Become strength.

    • Thanks…I am talking to my soul in the poem. So your reply is right on target.

      In times of struggle, strength is what gets us through.

      Venting in poetry helps too 🙂
