Oceans internally collide
As storms throw froth
Spray roars with rage
The waves crash into you
Then run away from you
Constant tidal movement
Led in part by the moon
This is how I experience you
I try to love you
Through your chaos
Through your typhoons
Of manic moods and mania
I want to love you
Like my fathers instructions
But your undertow
Is dragging me under
A passive aggressive
I welcome your melancholia
The calm before your storms
Your calm sees
Your millpond glass
I happily skate
On your surface
If my love is to last
Become the millpond
And I will be your frog
