Nude Sitting on the Beach, a poem by Robert A. Sieczkiewicz

Sitting Nude by the BeachSitting Nude by the Beach, Edvard Munch (1898)

Sitting Nude by the Beach

Stripped myself of all earthly things
Never to yield to my old ways
Shall sink slowly into the sea
Washing away my many sins

The sins of my flesh did me wrong
Made me a slave of my desires
Thinking they’d set my body free
But it’s my mind that was enslaved

Spinning wild without any rules
Never a moment finding love
Only ephemeral pleasure
Leading to darkened loneliness

Now seek affection of the heart
That can provide internal warmth
It will be caring and sharing
By which I’ll finally be free

Husband, Father, Grandfather, Lover of all beautiful things. I love to read and write poetry. My favorite hangouts are libraries and museums and yet I love being outdoors. I am a dreamer of things that could be.
