Some words I vomited at 1am when I couldn't sleep.

A voice like an ocean once said,

"Take care not to break your heart

On the rocks beneath my waves;

windswept seas have no mind

for gentleness."

And I stayed clinging to the only

Thought in my mind that could

Keep me afloat in its waters.

There was a time I thought the

Quiet within myself could calm

The storms within its turbulent

Soul.

But how can a lion

Tame the heart of a star?

In reply I offered my heart

regardless of the cost.

"Move softly through my forests;

Strong roots that crack the earth

can still burn."

It was in that moment I realized,

Land and Sea

Were set apart for a reason.
