I do not like to describe what my poems mean or why I wrote them... lets just say I wrote this after a difficult time when I felt wrongly used.

You, sitting there merely gazing

As I erode against the last waves of life.

Without detection, without worry.

A triumphant grin plays on you face

And I non-exist --

Yet watching on, watching you

Eat yourself up with your own teeth.

But always sure, so sure

Because I am far, I am gone

You suppose

I was weak, and no one knew,

No one saw you

Plunging my head below the surf

Until the last bubble vanished

And I became the ocean

And you, the sky.
