the ocean doesn’t comfort me like it should

the water looked like angry

hands, clawing at the sand

leaving marks

like fingernails


and the wind screamed


like an angry voice i couldn’t hear

and the seagulls didn’t dare



and my lungs, i think,

froze a little bit

because the stormy sea and

your eyes


the screaming wind and your voice


the desperate waves

and your fingers


i went to the ocean the day you left

and all i could see was you.
