PAPERBACK BOOKS
OCEAN OF DREAMS

When a relationship goes bad, a man does not always head out to get drunk with mates. Sometimes he sits home and writes poetry.

Women, ever wonder if men really hurt when they walk out your door for the last time? 

Men, you know how you feel. You know how difficult it is to express yourself. After all, you donít want to look foolish, especially in front of the woman you still love. 

This is a collection of poetry from a man who wasnít scared of looking foolish. With his words, he hopes to convey to men it is okay to love, lose, and get back on your feet in preparation that the next woman will be the one. His words will show that a man can hurt much more than what the eyes can see. 

Take one dose of a poem a day. Apply to an open wound. Healing is slow, but maybe the scar will be easier to live with.

Rick Ferguson was born, raised, worked and played in Melbourne, Australia. He spent many years searching for a special someone; always thinking the next one would be the one. Because of disappointments he learned to express his pain with words that come from the deepest corners of his heart. 

His formal education came from life experiences; both from his heartaches and his triumphs. 

Rick refuses to be a man in emotional pain that hides.  Believing when one door closes another opens left him with hope in spite of his pain.  

This is a collection of his words based on love he felt, love he lost, and future promises of love. 

Rick currently resides in Shepparton, Victoria, Australia

OCEAN OF DREAMS 

 

she is my sun

and i'm her earth

 

light becomes thunder

your sunshine

i miss like rain

 

i drank your love

with unending thirst

 

drinking from your soul

i got drunk on your love

 

as the wind blew in my hair

the angel came from nowhere

 

i saw you as a free spirit

 

when i get very sad or upset

that is where i go

 

and i close my eyes

 

 

take me back to the ocean of dreams

when i was at the beach

watching the burning sun

 

where we ran

wild and free

 

laughing upon laughter

as we chased each other

 

while the sand

kept our footprints

forever

 

where you wrote you loved me

deeply into the sand

 

i like to watch the gentle waves

the stirring calms me

in the middle of the night

 

when everything was real

 

before i lost my plight

 

 

take me back to the beach house

where you keep your secrets

locked inside

 

together we made love

 

slowly in time

i moved my lips

 

i looked deeply into your eyes

and you felt dreamy

 

i saw the ocean in your eyes

and i

wanting it to last forever

 

tears came down your face

down your pure cheeks

 

then down your neck

and onto your heart

 

your body began to shake

and you said

you would love me forever

 

 

with each kiss

i found a piece

of you

 

drinking your cool wine

from your mind

 

i saw roses everywhere

all over the bed

 

my heart's on fire

i saw your love

that you can't hide

 

you were sitting on my bed of roses

with a deep, dark smile

bigger than the moon

 

who let out the devil inside of you?

 

temptation brings me to my knees

as you grabbed a rose off my bed

 

i asked myself how much was enough?

 

 

i had no answer

so speechless

you looked so beautiful

 

as the room spun out of control

i kissed all over your body

 

you felt my sunshine

and my dark rain

 

ever so sweet feeling your love

slowly but surely

you looked so beautiful

 

your soft sea was flowing

i touched your body

 

ever so softly as you felt electricity

you begged for more

you looked so beautiful

 

you cried begging for more

 

i moved my hands down

to your soft sea

you moaned so loud

you looked so beautiful

feeling your pure love

and all of the unknown treasures

you hide inside of yourself

 

your whole body and soul

 

you begged me to make you a woman

with your devil eyes

and crying

 

you looked so beautiful

 

i held you tightly

slowly i made a home inside your love

 

the room spun quicker

as you felt my magic

you knew it would never leave us

 

when i screamed i gave a part of me

i saw angels over your head

 

when i screamed, it was over

i held you all night in my arms

knowing what we created

will always be with us

 

it was the morning

and the bed had stopped spinning

 

your jaded soulful eyes

punched love into my mind

 

pure and innocent

full of love

 

you deeply kissed me

you looked so beautiful

 

she's very loving

an angel on my knee

 

sunshine in your hair

in your tear stained eyes

 

but you looked so beautiful

as you bounced slowly

there in my room

 

love me till the end

 

with every word

you made me smile inside

 

you looked so beautiful

 

i can't believe you fell on to the ground

and broke inside

 

i felt your sharp edges

i hate how you feel

 

i just want to die inside

to stop what we both are feeling

 

i know you're not well

i want to protect you

and be there for you

 

but when you're strong

you're beautiful

 

i wish i could kiss this pain away

holding you in my arms tightly

 

with every kiss

i rebuild another piece

of your broken soul

 

 

gluing angel wings back together again

kissing your heart all over

ever so deeply

 

angel, i hope you never let go

until i've repaired your soul

 

hearing your heartbeat so very quickly

as you purr with happiness

 

you're so beautiful

full of pure love

 

slow wonderful love

till the sun comes up

 

it's the future that will make us

not the past

 

i didn't mean

to be so thoughtless

 

angel on her feet

flying towards me

with her arms out

 

 

seeing angels over my head

whispering to me promises of love

and forgiveness

 

she's so beautiful

truer and darker

than any angel fear would know

 

i'm trapped on my island

scared and alone

deep within my river of time

praying with my heart

 

with each blink of my eyes

feeling my love inside

closing them slowly

 

writing poems on paper

that no one will see

then sealing them in my broken heart

 

folding my words

into little boats

 

true to my words

 

pushing them into an ocean of dreams

smaller bits

of my heart fall into the water

 

in the ocean of dreams

 

shuffling my feet nervously

butterflies in my mind

 

i feel your words

for i'm the devil inside

 

i hate being alone

without you

when i should be hugging you

 

along the ocean of dreams

you are a part of me

 

winding paths take me back

to yesterday where we were

safe

 

i wish

i could see your lips

ever so softly

and paint the words

you can't say

forever a day

 

iím living in our

own secret world

 

nobody can

live forever

 

i feel so cold

alone

 

i'll burn my poems

for they are dead

memories

 

and throw them

in the ocean of dreams

 

you are free to swim

around them

 

i see shadows

i chase them in my head

i see you there in the corner

looking back at me

 

 

trying to stop

from running to you

as quick as i can

 

i see your walls go up

i fall to the ground

 

there's a red liquid everywhere

and you are hurting me

with your smile

 

i feel alone

i want to fight

against the tide

 

i can't take it anymore

 

i don't believe in anything

anymore

 

my dreams are gone

and i can't breathe

ocean of dreams

wash me

save me

for another day

 

stop this sinking feeling

 

i'm full of cuts

and a broken heart

 

i won't fight you anymore

as the water covers me

from head to toe

 

i see your face in the ocean

i'm swimming

i want to find you

and you are nowhere

 

i'm running out of air

i see your face deep inside

in the ocean of dreams

 

i feel so broken

and lost inside

 

i know it's the end

i can't fight it anymore

 

i'm getting cold chills

in my guts

 

i'm crying

the water is playing tricks with my mind

your teasing sea face

within this ocean of dreams

 

i kiss you deeply

i smile at you

losing my mind in time

 

"i see us loving love

in the sand"

 

"i lose a piece of me

every time when we fight"

 

"it's too much"

 

"i donít know what to do"

 

this is my final time

i won't be back

 

my soul is broken

and lost

 

 

swimming in my ocean

of dreams

 

don't let me die

i love you

 

come back to where you belong

 

swimming in our ocean of dreams
