I feared not what had already been done, but I was disheartened by the multitude of things I could not point my finger about. You were a billion grains of sand beneath my feet, constant, everywhere, but shifting. Some days I had no idea who you were, and others, I was the ocean on your shore. It was astonishing that you could walk down a crowded pier, and not a single person would stop you. I hardly wanted to know of your deepest emotional bindings, but simply enough, I was in love with the way the wind brushed through your hair. When it rained, I could see the condensation fall from your eyelashes, or were those your tears? You cannot hide the waves of pain you feel, but I am too afraid to say how beautiful we could have been. Beneath me, the sand, you, drag me further out to sea until I can no longer feel the ground underneath my toes. I taste you like the ocean in my mouth, you are so cold, but inviting. I swam further and further until I could not see your sun kissed shores any longer. I cried every time I submerged my head beneath the water and worse, could not steady my feet on your foundations. You shifted me away from you, and only wanted me at your own beckoning. I would lie here on my back, letting the salt and sun eat away at my skin until you called me home again. I loved you for exactly what you were in this world, but it was never enough. I opened my eyes to the clouds, only to see a flock of birds circling my lifeless, loveless, empty body. I wished for the monsters of the ocean to swallow me whole and drag me to the depths just to feel the sand again. The waves have called me their own, enveloping my limbs, eating my soul. Unaware of their unbindingly cruel passion, my loyalties lie with you. And even in death, I will drown in something you wished to control, and sink right back into your arms at the bottom of this deathless entity.
