have you ever watched the sea at night?
huge crashing waves leap and tear at the shore,
the moon casts her ghostly sheen
and the waves carve a mean silhouette against the dark
as the world spins
and the ocean swallows your soul.
but in the morning, with the sunrise, there is calm.
the leaping beasts that roared from within
the light bathes the waves with its warmth
until their cries are the seagulls in the dawn.
