You embody everything I love about the sea,

Your eyes shifting from blue to grey remind me of the changing within the water’s colors at different times of day. 

How at first you came across as cold and sharp,

But after staying with you longer and longer, you made me feel warmer than I ever thought possible. 

While some allow themselves to bathe in your salt, I’m too consumed with your sweetness.

While some fear the intensity you love with, every time I drift away I want you to pull me back in.

You’re a rip current I always want to be stuck in, a tidal wave I want to drown in.

I’m in love with you, my very own ocean.
