You entice me with your power and force
You undulate, gentle but oh so strong
I long to fall, roll and revel with you
I speak not of love but the sea, of course
You beckon me with such a subtle song
Dark azure water, moving, ever new
Take me to your depths, I will come freely
Give myself to you, stay with you, forget
Walking into your cold embrace, easy
I speak of love, still not forgotten yet
But lost. I will come, lie with you. Free me.
I watch the sea from my apartment every day; the way it changes colour depending on the weather, the way it moves, I’ve seen its power but I’m always calmed in its presence. In reality, I would never give up my life to the sea but I can understand those who do and this was written for them.
