september by the ocean. #poetry


some days I quietly remember
that warm night in September
when I found you by the ocean
both overcome with emotion
I knew I’d found the reason
I had to keep believing
because you smiled and words were spoken
and I knew… never again would I be broken

[I always think my rhyming poetry is terrible… but I was so happy I was able to write something that I’m sharing it anyway. I hope it’s okay. And this is not based on a true story (bummer)… it’s based on characters from my ‘secret book’.]

About what sandra thinks

Sandra is a writer, blogger, poet, artist, emotional disaster. She thinks far too much and sleeps far too little. Sandra lives in the Northeastern U.S. but dreams of an oceanfront home in Hawaii where she could learn to surf. She loves books, brutal honesty, coffee, and the color black. She hates insincerity, beer, whipped cream, and facebook. And she is uncomfortable talking about herself in the third person.

    Poetry is hard! Rhyming poetry, I’ve always found impossible. But you nailed this one. Nicely done!

  3. There is no right or wrong with prose
    as anyone who’s tried sure knows
    the more you try to rhyme or not
    you’re bound to get into an awful mess and terribly frustrated!

    Keep up the writing, and the sharing.

    I rhyme 99% of the time. I know it isn’t considered cool by most “enlightened” writers, but it is how my brain works. Just keep writing. Share what you feel like sharing, but always keep writing. Even if you don’t like it, someone will. I’m always surprised, I get the biggest reactions from posts I almost didn’t publish. Just keep writing!!!
