    Description:
       Ok so I wrote this in like 5 mintues while tettering on sleep. I know it needs work but I do like some of what I have here so please rip it to shreds and help me out, cause I really think I have something to build on with this piece.

    -------------------------------------------


    I lay upon the sand
    waves crashing down
    on my bare feet

    A sigh and a shiver
    remembering Im still alive
    though these hands are cold

    It's time to close
    these broken eyes
    their fractured views
    just add to the pain

    And Im face down in the sand
    waves crash down upon my back
    I strip off my clothes

    The harvest moon rises
    still air surrounds
    as the tide slowly comes in

    It's time to close
    these broken eyes
    The blind see more truth
    then this jaded man

    Im standing on the sand
    Naked before night sky
    letting the tide take me away

    No sharks out tonight
    The moons high in the east
    And Im just swimming

    But it's time to close
    these broken eyes
    their fractured view
    just add to the pain

    Arms grow tired
    and this dead man
    doesn't want to float...

      this write comes of to me as a white flag like i'm sick of my life being so hard and worthless...just let me be and be taken by the sea...its weird though this is a rather sad piece of a broken man seeming to give up...it comes off so peaceful...when i was done reading it i felt really relaxed or maybe i'm just weird maybe the thoughts of the ocean...i love the word use...fractured view...thats a great description...and the lines of a blind man seeing better than this jaded man...i'm not really thinking that its incomplete but if you added more i don't think it would not break the serene and sadness of this write...purps

      You will find her...amidst the moments of light.
    She'll be the one watching you...within your darkest night.
    You'll find her, as she waits for you...
    heartfelt fragments scream to be heard
    your calling will bound a love so true.

    I wish you happiness and joy John...
    You deserve it!
    Be well
    &
    Take care

      This is a brilliant piece of writing. The imagery comes together very well to communicate an emotion to the reader without beating them over the head with it. This piece really allowed me to add my own thoughts and significances to your words, and i really love that in a poem. It reminded me of the times when i just wanted to float away on the tide. Thanx for your words.

      i thought that it was a good piece. i liked the way that you wrote it. it felt different. i would add some more punctuation. i thought that the imagery was nice and it read pretty well. keep it up.

      'then this jaded man' - then should be than.

    And when you say 'the waves crashing down,' I think, on, or upon, would be appropriate than down. Just me?

    Overall, the seemingly hopelessness is sympathizing.
