There I was standing with the surrounding echo of the wind
Caught in the middle of the rampaging thirst for love and my dauntless inner voice
And suddenly…
I suddenly became a girl
Who was walking towards the ocean
Scared of its enormity and its crashing waves.

I am too afraid to drown in you
To be snatched by your shattering current
And lay beneath the depths of your trenches

Rising and vanishing through your waters
I cling on as I ride the violent thrust of your waters
Rising and vanishing once more.

And when all is exhausted,
Please do not leave me dry along the shore.
For I would not have a clue where to start again
Having been drowned in you for too long,
I do not know how else to walk the world,
And how to live in it without you.
