It’s a real shame that running away to sea isn’t considered a common career alternative anymore :/

I do not want to be alone like this. Why have you not come back to haunt me? It is the least I would have expected of you. Why this silence day after day, night after interminable night? It is like a fog, this silence of yours. First it was a blur on the horizon, the next minute we were in the midst of it, purblind and stumbling, clinging to each other...Send back your ghost. Torment me, if you like. Rattle your chains, drag your cerements across the floor, keen like a banshee, anything. I would have a ghost.

“The town built a seawall to keep big waves from breaking on its shores, but somehow it kept bad news from breaking as well. The little port began drifting toward a more hopeful reality. Before it disappeared, its people built a lighthouse, inviting others to escape with them.” -QuietPineTrees

Night, and everything so quiet, as if there were no one, not even myself.

“Carnivorous plants coat the sea floor, glowing blue and white to mimic the sky. Dolphins and whales are too smart to be caught, but simple fish fall for it. They feel gravity pulling them toward the fake sky and swim down to their doom, thinking they’ll finally be able to fly.” -QuietPineTrees

Things that have been swallowed by the sea
Lost yachts; the bones of whales; those towns that once stood upon the clifftops; submarines; engagement rings flung from beaches; meteorites; pills; containers shed from listing ships; deserted lighthouses; rocks that once stood as an arch or a pillar or balanced impossibly over the sea; ashes scattered from urns; dropped library books; salt; gold; fragments of falling spacecraft; murder weapons; mudbound statues; the detritus of rivers; snapped masts; pirate skeletons still clinging to the barnacled chest of their dreams; dissolved ghosts; lonely sounds far from the sight of land; evidence; the prey of kelp mazes; ideas that proved too seasick for their time; freak waves; nets; crumbled-up islands; the moon's path; maps; divers; skimmed stones.

I found intolerable the thought of being known in the way that he seemed to know me. Better than I knew myself. Worse.
