O Sea, My Heart


O sea, my heart, ever raging.
Within you are dark & secret places, a world I cannot navigate alone.
You are bigger than me.
You swallow me in your breakers.
You open wide your mouth to roar & crash over all before you.
You give life & you take it away.
Your voice is terrible, comforting; deafening, awakening.
I walk barefoot in your shallows, but dare not venture further.
I cannot breathe beneath your depths.
I cannot stand against your weight.
I cannot fathom your beginning nor comprehend your end.
You, o sea, are my heart, ever raging.
You rise & slink away, bound to laws bigger than us both.
