You may whisper your secrets to the sea
And the sea will keep them for you
Cover them with crashing waves
Carry them out on retreating tides
Pull them under
Tuck them into coral-adorned recesses and between the curves of seashells.
The sea will hold your secrets in its depths
And if you need them back, you need only ask
They will be returned to you
Damp and salt-kissed and safe.
