Seek peace so everyday I wait by the sea just like the dreams, I mimic the details as I visualize myself on top of the whales surfing to an island of paradise. View is nice and air is clear like the clouds in the sky. I am fed grapes from the vine by lovely ladies in bikinis. They as well are devoted to rubbing my feet. The admire the words I speak. This was my dream I snapped out of it from daydreaming and wanted to make peaceful dream into reality. Take my flip flops off and I started to saunter towards the sea. Water got deeper and deeper and closer towards my face. I closed my eyes and was ready to come face to face with my dream. But instead of riding on a whale like I imagined I am sinking lower and lower to the bottom of the ocean am I’m thinking how did this happened?
I am doing the pumpkins prompt challenge and the topic I posted a poem on is “water” and I want to give a special shout out to Irene for creating this challenge and I think its a wonderful and creative idea for bloggers to interact with each other. Check out her blog when you get chance.

My life leaks like water out of a pipe. I cry puddles watching you exit from my life. Each tear is symbolic and the pain in my heart just can’t stop it. Tine wasting water leaking, Death occurring and my heart is broken. What these four have in common, they are all consistent. You wasted my time, I feel like committing suicide since my heart is broken and tears is like a broken pipe constantly leaking. I defined you as water, The liquid that kept me hydrated but you took my heart and like a branch, just snapped it. Waking up sweating and every day come closer to becoming dehydrated. I drink a new type of water bottle to replace you but problem is each water bottle taste different.
In this poem, the main theme is heartbreak. I use water leaking out of a pipe as an example because this means leaking emotions, loss of power, and somebody walking out of your life. I cry because I couldn’t handle the pain. The person I was in love with, I compared that person to water and her love kept me hydrated and since she left, I can’t function. So I make a comparison stating that I am dehydrated which means that I am broken, so in order to heal myself, I make another comparison to a water bottle saying everyday I drink a new water stating all water tasted different. This means that, I am searching for a new soulmate but every person I dealt with after my previous lover, didn’t have the same effect because no two people are like. The more girls I date, the more I miss my previous lover because I will never love no girl like I did with my previous lover. Lesson is, rebounds are a bad idea and you should take time to reflect on the relationship that just ended.
Being lonely at times helps me escape reality in my mind. Imagine happiness to escape the pain. Wishing I was a man with fame instead of being a lame. Swear at times my mind is a game playing tricks like a prostitute being a side chick to a pimp. Remembering all the presents for Christmas but in reality never got shit. Jealous of the other kids made me sick to the point wishing I was different. Reminisce the negative but replace it with the positive. The positive is false but that’s what I choose to acknowledge. Blame myself for not having both parents but yet I see mom and dad hugging and loving me as if I am the one and only. Beautiful fairy tale like a Walt Disney movie. Walking home from school hearing gunshots on the block refuse to listen and instead picturing me and my friends with waterguns. Selling bricks hittin licks for me is the hustle to subdue my struggles to make college affordable. But instead picture myself filling out FAFSA forms to make college affordable. Dreaming of making my unborn child proud saying to him ” I did this for you” Tears come down as my unborn child reached his rest day before his birthday. I picture my new friend as my best man in my wedding ceremony When I really walked in on him and my gf in my house having sex and I pull out my 9mm aiming at them wishing in my mind this never happened.
