Free Verse Poetry

wash me clean

with your salt water touch

I feel the day dissolving
into pink roses and orange blossoms

when the sun melts away
your cool hands will carry me

deeper into the ocean
where the water turns inky black

and swallows every star in the sky

Why I Wrote the Poem

If you’d like to hear a little more about what inspired me to write “wash me clean” feel free to check out this YouTube video I made about it. Watch till the end if you’d like to hear me read the poem aloud.

Thanks for being here. Thanks for listening. I’ll see you next time.

I write poetry and I'm trying to write full-length books. I also do a lot of talking about the books I read and the things I write here on Wordpress, on my YouTube channel (@the_happy_booknerd), on my Instagram account (@exisflor) and on my TikTok account (@the_happy_booknerd). Hope to connect with you sometime on any of those platforms. And as always: I hope you're doing okay.
