What is the sea?

The sea beckons me,
inside it's mystery I’ll be,
                               interwoven in ecstasy.
           Her waves break on the shore.
Crashing pain, throbbing in my core.
           Yet, boisterous waves create peace as well.
So complex this joy and sorrow — I cannot tell.
            The charm in her mist bewitches me.
  Like a depth of wide serenity.
           Solitude seems perfectly content.
She fools me with her disguise.
Life emerges from the ocean’s eyes.
            I let tranquility within arise!
She engulfs me with her luring sighs.
            I become one with her magnificent  tides.
