Read introduction

After watching the sea batter itself against the rocks, it brought to mind a woman in emotional turmoil, desperately trying to get the cold object of her devotion to reciprocate.

Current Affairs.

The furious sea
both loves and hates
the unchanging rock
upon whom she breaks
for he stands impassive
in the face
of her juggernaut emotion.

She returns with
attrition-laced devotion.
Tender loving wear.
Clawing at his armour,
trying to find a heart
that isn't there.

She withdraws,
pretends she's leaving
but familiar with her lies
he is certain in believing
that her waves are not goodbyes.
That her waves
are not
goodbyes.
