I went down to the beach today
To see the beauty of the waves and the rocks
To feel something good

And when I got there
I saw the beauty of the of the see
the rocks
and the sky

Yet I felt nothing
I could not let the beauty seep into my soul
But not because I didn’t want it

I wanted this beauty
craved it so badly
a reason to live
But I couldn’t

So I let the waves beacon me
into its cold and angry embrace
for a long winters swim.
