Life Circles: Poems of Hope: About My Darling Sweet Obsession.

Updated on March 15, 2012

Each End Has a New Beginning.

I Had to Come Back Again.

Life Circles: Poems of Hope: About My Darling Sweet Obsession by Pearldiver is an inspirational poem that honors the power of love and lovers. A Life Circle will always move forward from its source; we as people who live in hope; are that source, love is the tangible hope that we find we need in our lives and really can not live our lives to their fullest, without. My Darling Sweet Obsession is a powerful view of a special love between two lovers who only meet when the moon is full and the tides are at their highest. Enjoy My Darling Sweet Obsession.

=+=

I just had to come back

And be with you again

My sweet obsession

=+=

Taken is my soul;

Lost by your depth;

The tranquility in your eyes

I know all your raging moods;

They have washed away better men

But this primal need for pleasure;

This summer moon full

Is far too great; too strong

Always pulling me towards you

=+=


Across An Empty Sandy Bay.

I Know All Your Raging Moods.

Our hearts; I hear them pounding

To the need to be

Completely; just to be; forever…

Completely; immersed within you

Familiar lovers entwined; immersed;

Drenched in the beating pulse

Of salty waves perspired

Silently he knows; this magnetic moon;

Dancing; with his shimmering smile

Across our empty sandy bay

=+=

I could never really consider

When I am with you like this

That life could ever exist; without you

Beyond these nights; these times

That we join together in our love

The pains of missing you are so true

=+=

I just had to come back

And be with you again

My sweet obsession

We have this whole night

Familiar lovers entwined

Until morning brings parting waves

With our energy spent; a low tide

=+=

So we blend into our moonlight

This wild love really enhances

My every sense; my every being

On a washed beach; just before the dawn

My obsession shows no sign of fleeing

But this sand; it sparkles in the light

And feels cold upon my back

Moving; moving higher now

Above the sweep of the tide

Wet and tangled from the love

We have shared; now we just sit

Be still my love; so I can see all of

The moonlight dancing over you

=+=

Above The Sweep of The Tide.

Sitting Now; Just Out of Reach.

Who Are We To Know Best?

I just know you so well

I must go; but I’m sitting here now

Just out of reach

I watch your slender fingers

Searching; beyond the tide

Such a determined silky wet touch

Goodbye my love; I already miss you

So my love; no matter what we do

I must always come back

To just be with you again

My darling sweet obsession

You hold my heart; that is true

=+=

I could never really consider

When we have spent a night like this

That my life on earth could exist

Without your love

Without your ebb and flow

Without the life that you give

So much hope and wonderment

Among your treasures; are the hearts

Of all faithful lovers; just like me

My darling sweet obsession

I just have to come back again soon

To you; my sweet obsession

May I never loose the love I feel

For this darling obsession

You make me restless, alive and free

=+=

But with you; darling sweet obsession

I feel as though you take me home

You have so much power over me

So please tell me this; my love

Can any mere mortal man not be

Truly captured and enchanted;

Truly engrossed and in love like me

Caught within the currents that you are

Yes darling sweet obsession; caught I'll always be

Please; always take me home

For you; also faithful I'll always be;

My darling sweet obsession;

I will be faithful to; your oceans and your tears

And you will always own my obsessive loyal heart

For I just have to always come back to just be

With you again; my love; my gentle raging sea.

I hope that you have enjoyed this poem for lovers of the sea and lovers in general. Thank you for reading Life Circles: Poems of Hope: About My Darling Sweet Obsession. Where would we be without hope and where would we be without the Sea? She puts up with so much from people, oil and fishing companies and we tend to ignore the fact that our oceans are the life blood of our world.

The ocean waters that you see when you look at the beach today; will tomorrow flow through another place in the world. The sea is always moving through currents that circumvent the globe. Don't let those currents carry pollutants and rubbish to the places that also rely on the purity of those oceans, to support other precious life forms that may no longer survive if their environment and ecosystem has been ruined by man.

Think about that the next time you see someone thoughtlessly discard plastic rubbish into the sea or on the beach. It's too late when our seas are polluted; extinction has already occurred. It's a pity that we allow others to do that because we are too apathetic and we let those oil companies destroy so much... so arrogantly.... as if it is their right. They justify the rape by quoting supply and demand: Look the public wants petrol and we do.... because the public is obsessed with fossil fuels.. and it is truly this cruel, bitter obsession; that is stronger than the public desire to share the beautiful places that we unwittingly take from our children.

      Interesting choice of name.. I'm not that sure your comment or your choice of oral action is likely to be relevant to anyone though, as the world out there does tend to ignore anonymous personal remarks from anonymous entities! Thanks for taking the time to share your point of view though.. Kia Ora kiwi..

      Hi there Candie.. I'm sorry that I hadn't noticed my hub comments for a while and must have looked to everyone like I was ignoring them.. I wasn't and I am really pleased to see you my friend. Hope you have your winter wood all cut and stacked... your summer has slipped down under and that has been like an invitation to us to have a shipwreck on my coast, spilling oil across my favorite, beautiful beaches. Grrrr.

      I'm glad you enjoyed this one before the oil slick reached it. Thanks for remembering and hugs to you too Candie girl.. you take care.

      Hello EagleKiwiMainlander, How are you in the big sky? Thanks for reading this work and enduring my poety without getting seasick :)... You know some of the greatest writers and poets have gained their inspiration from the wind EK... Sure you might get straitjacketed but think about how wonderfully you will be able to ask for help!

      Hahaha take care.. I look forward to reading about Conical Hills and maybe your day treks to gather those famous high country mountain oysters! You could guess blog CV on that one!

      Thankyou ,was awesome!

      Sometimes I think Id love to write poetry ,specially when I hear the wind whisper words in my ear,then I think ,yikes if I tell someone here theyd rush me off to some clinic-hahaha

      Hi acaetnna, thanks for reading this poem of hope and of course for.. finding me!! I have to say at times that I have a lot of difficulty doing that myself. I'm pleased that you find my poetry inspirational.. if so, then it is worthy of the time taken to create it.. cheers for that. This poem... is unusual in that I am not sure, as a result of the difference of opinions, whether I need to shorten it or not? Thanks again for your kind compliment. Take Care.

      Hi DTjnr, thanks for reading this work and your comments. You have noticed the change. Yes I did this rather badly, as I wrote this in two separate sessions on different days. That is a no-no as each day one's flow is always likely to be different. So you are quite right and I will make that adjustment. Cheers for that ... take care.

      I noticed a few people mentioned it here already, but you are a true poet. Your words and imagery are completely engulfing, much like your beloved sea. My only humble critique is that I wish the poem were shorter. The last third of the poem, I felt caught up and "on top" of it, if you will. Whereas up until the line "you hold my heart, that is true" I was holding my breath and caught up in the whirlwind of imagery. The last third didn't read with as much poignancy for me. Nice work.

      Hahaha Touche Larry, I thought they taught the Marines to Grit their teeth and Grin when they bare it, even under fire? I think perhaps if one makes a lover of the sea, they must constantly concern themselves with potentially waking up after a moonlit romp with sea lice, more than worrying about the sand! But mind you.. I've always been cautious about girls called Sandy also. Take Care mate and be well.

      Hi Erthfrend, thank you for taking the time to read this work. So glad you enjoyed it. Pollution of our oceans is so often ignored by people as they choose apathetically to not see the results of their rubbishing. So many sea creatures and birds are affected by that ignorance. Grrr... Take care.

      This poem was simply amazing, so beautifully written, so visual. I truly enjoyed it. And thank you for speaking so fullheartedly about the ocean at the end of the poem, about pollution and the environment. Its so very important and it makes me so happy whenever I hear of someone that cares as much as I do.

      Hi Freya, thank you for reading and enjoying this poem. I think it's fascinating how we each interprete a poem; I had not written those lines as a standalone statement and didn't really look at them that way until you played them back to me! They are nice lines.. thank you for shifting my perspective... this is a fun learning experience. Take care and be well.

      Hi Rebekah, Hahaha yes I used that title especially for you... knowing that your curiousity would lead you here. I couldn't help it.. the Sea has influenced my whole life, plus I'm a water sign, so I guess and hope it will continue that way. Thanks for reading this work and thanks for your ever positive compliment.

      The coves in that photo are amazing as there are amoung the rocky bays, these awesome little white sand beaches, that no one knows about. We do have some brilliant places here if you get off the tourist track and give yourself the chance to feel the natural pulse. Did you publish that poem Rebekah? You take care and be well.. thanks again.

      well, of course, I'm going to read a poem with such a beautiful title, My Darling Sweet Obsession. as soon as I started reading it, I understood. there is something about the sea that inspires hope and a fervant love for something bigger than our own lives.

      your poetry is so beautiful, it's a pleasure to read.

      I also wrote a poem years ago about the moon and the tides and a woman. The moon and the woman fell in love and she became a star in the sky..

      thanks for sharing these beautiful poems of hope.

      ps. the photo of the fjords reminds me of Lord of the Rings. Your country is so amazing.. someday I hope to see it.

      Hi dallas, yes that tends to be the sad fact with 'outflows'.. but I thought that parasitic bug was only carried by town and city councillers. Thanks for commenting on this seriously important and highly crappy human discharge. We really do abuse the sea don't we?

      Most of our cities "dump" their sewer water into our seas... The danger. T. gondii is a parasite and infects everything warm-blooded. There is no cure. Sewage plants do not "kill" T. gondii. Most of us have it.. It effects our behaviors...

      Hi MPGN, Thanks for taking the time to read this poem and your kind comments. Our seas support more than we currently know and I feel it would be nice to find out exactly what lives so close to us. Besides I also enjoy fishing and boating, so the sea is quite important in my life.. it's hard to ignore something that greets you everyday. Be Well and Take Care.
