Salt

I stand on the shore and watch

Wait

Through the deafening silence

As you guide your sails

Away from me

And the rock 

Which would have broken you

I instead cut my flesh

And pour out my heart

Giving order to the waves

And speed to the wind.

I have no tears 

For I gave all my salt to you.
