I'll be the ocean wave to bring you out to sea,
but I can't carry you back in.
I'll lead you to your salty tomb,
lead you to the dangers underneath.
I am the mess you don't want to be in,
the innocent tide that will rip you to shreds.
I can take you far into the rippling horizon,
show you a sight you've never seen.
But my destructive waters can't take you home;
you're stuck out here or you brave it yourself.
I can't save you.
I can't save myself.

The author's comments:
I ruin things. And then I can't make them better. I'm sorry.
