Parting Ways

A story about two people parting ways.
I don't want to divulge too much about the story or the characters themselves, as I want it to be open to interpretation and discussion in the comments section.
As always, I just want my works to be enjoyed.

1. Parting Ways

Storm clouds gather overhead
As I gaze out to sea,
You stare intently
As if the turning of the tide
Will absolve all our sins

The heavens open

With military precision,
Angry raindrops hit my face
A barrage of battering bombs
Fall around us
As I shield you from the storm.

The water rises.

Faster and faster around us,
Until I am up to my neck
And you are submerged.
But I am not ready to accept this baptism
My head above the waves.

The final defiance.

Now the angry clouds are whipped
Into a rage, the sea froths and boils,
And the harsh winds roar and beat
me into submission. Until I must
Concede defeat. And inhale red.

The last time.

When the sea boiled away, the wind's
Voice and the vengeful footsteps of the rain faded.
I saw you there.
As somewhere a clock struck twelve.
Your feet did not touch the ground.
