It is by her shores that I find
where beauty breathes.
With every ebb and flow of her tides
I inhale deeply
of what my soul craves
and what my heart aches for;
exhaling what I no longer need,
burdens too heavy to carry
and which bring me only sorrow.
I lay them at my feet,
no sacrifice to the gods
simply a hopeful offering,
watching as the waves cover them completely,
gradually pulling them away from me,
from what had held me below the surface
unable to breathe.
