Warm Day at Sea

Today is a warm day at sea.

You are not reflected in the waves.
You are not a light under unknown stars.
You are not a ghost I hope to summon from the depths.

You were a final destination.
You were circled in red.
You were important.

But you played the fickle sailor.
But you abandoned ship in the eye of the storm.
But you fucked off to drag your feet in a puddle.

Today is a warm day at sea.
For when I see who you have become,
I find no reason to shift sails.
And it delights me.
