Standing on a cliff,
The rim of the galaxy.
I look down into the deep
The waters rough, call out to me.
They break across the rocky shore,
Washing clean my memory.
Angry tides pull at the coast,
Folding it back into the sea.
With half an ear, I listen to her cry.
The end of some great symphony.
Then I learned to hear the Ocean.
“Open your ears.” Says she.
In that quiet; the shouts, the cries!
I thought they were meant for me.
But they were meant for a world long turned deaf
To the song of the seven seas.
To late, I see the ground fall free,
Open beneath my feet.
Waiting for me to fall towards
The end of eternity.
