The Sea

Yesterday, I swam
With the sea
And it took me
While the beach was empty

That is what comes
When you’re told
The singing in your heart
Can go no further
And there will always be someone better
And here the wave comes

Yesterday, I swam with the sea
And it took me
The beach was empty
The solitude corrected me
Loosening my muscles in the silent undertow
I didn’t know it
Until I was gone

Yesterday, I swam
