I stood alone
on your
shore's edge.
Waiting.
Wanting
for you to pull me
into your depths.

Many moons
have passed.
Tides high,
Tides low.
Still I wait
Alone.

Your waters touched me,
teased me,
took advantage
of my gentle presence.
I consoled
your troubled waters.
Embraced
your fury.
But
on your shore's edge,
I stood alone.

What a lovely, sad poem!  I feel very close ties to the sea and love the feel of this, plus the underlying, hidden meanings as well.

I enjoyed your analogy between the sea and the relationship..being taken for granted or left alone is very much like standing on the shore...just on the edge...but close enough to feel the ocean's breath.
