My Heart is the Sea

My heart is the sea.

My heart is the sea

The rolling, pulsing tidal push

As she breaks, in receeding foam

And beats again, in surging rush

 

The pounding of the booming surf

That crashes on compacted sand

And echoes of the easterly

That beats upon the yielding land

 

And in the storm she bleeds with me

Stirred to anger, by the violent blow

She casts her brown blood on the sands

Heaped and twisted, row by row.
