Oceans High

The waves jump up before me

as I look from beach to line

that turns and rises

then falls.

You sailed away before

I knew

the tides of us,

before I plunged

into you

and swam beneath the veneer

of calm seas

to find

treasures sunken by Time.

Now that storms have stirred

your rescue is not possible

through my love

nor through my hate.

I am land-locked

while you are on your salty journey out.
