The ocean is a woman

The ocean is a woman
Calling you deeper
Into her embrace.

You don't know
how far you've gone
Into her
Before it's too late.

When you realize
You've gone out
Past the swells and
Still she takes you further

And no amount of
swimming will take
You back to shore
You know in your bones

That you have gone too far.

Let go.

And when she has had
her way with you
She may return you
Where you began

Or not.

But you will be
a better man for letting go
And surrendering
to her embrace.
