The waves come and go
like the feet of an unsteady woman
in the house of an unfair lover.
The waves roar and clap their hands
like the protestations of a woman
in the hands of a Don Juan.
The waves wear down the shores
like a woman dissipating over unrequited love.
Yet, the woman is bound to the man
as the oceans are in covenant with the moon,
for a woman needs a man.
And the waves come and go
because the celestial body would not leave the seas.
That is why the oceans are full of tempests
as love is replete with broken hearts!
