Call of the sea

The storm man stands
His hands pushing the frolicking waves away
He calls me, the ocean in his eyes
I drown there
and walk into his arms
leaving my distraught skin
on the crowded shore
along with some bedraggled  fears
The urge to float
drowns any resisting feathers
Sand on my soul
blue sea around
Let me die
to live beyond the shore.

    ” Call of the sea ” washes over the reader’s expectations from , ” The storm man stands ” all the way to the final , ” to live beyond the shore ” , the narrative’s allegories and metaphysical allusions swirling all around.
