Oh sea:
am I part of you?
At a loss, I come to you, my place of refuge,
and lament my alienation from the world.

Oh sea:
fate’s blows fall on me!
When I lie down on its white sand,
I see no stars!

Oh love:
love is like an elastic band,
that we hold at both ends and pull.
When one lets go,
it hurts the other.
