Surfer To His Wave – by: Devin Michael Lloyd

Passionate energy suck thy up
Grasp me tightly within your clutch
Lips so thick
Could make one sick

Surround my body as I feel you spit
Don’t close me out for I will fight
Every ounce of energy
So again I see the light

Pumping and pushing to regain my speed
Suddenly cut back with such great force from thee
As I notice your face is reforming as in
I realize it’s inside that you will end

So, pumping and pushing with all my might
It is a race for your lip within my sight
Then it is where I will begin my flight
Soaring through the air like a bird on a warm night

I slowly descend upon this perfect right
I then decide to call it a night
And to draw myself away from those perfect rights
I can now sleep tight
