A woman finding herself trying to shed past love. Or is the love still with her?

my newest and latest poem, and I do believe it's among one of my best.

You know, my descriptions are lame, if I was reading those I would not want to read the poem. I think my poems are better than how i make to sound...I really hope you think so too

My toes are pointed towards you,
and my heels step
on the lukewarm sand
backwards,
with trepidation.
Frozen mechanical sailors
row out of my heart,
take pieces of you
far away
with computational precision.
Ice cold giant steel boats,
silent floating mental boxes,
float and waver
to the distant roar of the thundering rocky shores
carrying with them
some fragrant candles;
a meal for two;
an engagement ring;
a shattered wine glass;
many many tears;
and the memory of it all.

My toes are pointed towards you,
towards ice cold giant steel boats.
My heart pointed away from you:
the other end of the compass
craves
walks back towards
warm sandy beaches and thundering rocky shores.
I stumble again.
