Sea Breeze

Posted on May 28, 2012


The heat beats at my window
Seeping in to my flat
Staying in my rooms
Like an unwelcome guest
A lobster boiling
I do feel
Unmoving and unable
This cloying heat
Breath coming in
Short hard gasps
As I struggle through
The day
Doing nothing but
Lay around
For the heat holds
Me prisoner in
Its embrace
Free me I rasp
Through laboured breaths
Take me to the
Sea breeze
Where I will be
Calm and free
My mind alert
Once again
