The sea is a ravenous beast;
It cares not for whom it swallows.
There will be no refuge from it—
Not in crannies, nooks, or hollows.
The sea is a monstrous thing;
Pays no heed to what it consumes,
Surges when you least expect it,
And on my horizon, it looms.
The sea is a covetous fiend;
It reaches with icy fingers.
I’ve begged for it to leave me be;
Months have passed, and still it lingers.
Your smile is like the thunder,
And your memories are haunting me.
Your fists are like the crashing waves,
And oh, your love is like the sea.
