The sun was dawning on a brand-new day. All of the water I had sent had swallowed up everything that I hated in the place I had once created. In the beginning it felt like we were going to be a great team that would always be together.
Unfortunately, you had different ideas and there was nothing I could do but watch as you changed in front of my eyes. Once you had stood before me with nothing but kindness in your heart. I don’t know how it happened but all of that got replaced by greed.
It felt like you turned your back on me long before I turned my back on you. It wasn’t long before the tears that I wept rose into the tide that I was sending to cleanse everything. It seemed so fitting for you to drown in my despair.
I honestly tried to love you despite everything that you were doing, but there came a time that I could no longer ignore what was happening in front of my eyes. The day I let you get swallowed up by the ocean signified my freedom.
The final droplet clinging to the rose was hauntingly beautiful.
