come with me, out to sea
only there can we be free

do not despair, let out your air
float with me, inside the sea

take my hand, for what we stand
in love and loss, this is our cost

swallow deep, the salty sea
drink it up, and sink with me

one last breath, one last look
upon the love, whose life I took

out to sea, forever free
my love and me


Note: I wrote this poem about characters in my first novel. The lovers are trapped in a hurricane on a barrier island in the south.
