Go, you are free to flow

This. Today. Right here, right now.
I'm letting you go.

You are free to flow.
Take a step back,
withdraw.

Zoom out into the horizon
where not even my longings can reach you.
No memories of us remain tied.

Sail out beyond the points marked in maps,
further into where there is no turning back.
Where the waves are too high, the sea is too deep
and the stars cannot lead you back to me.

To the land that once was our home.
We thought we cannot be touched
by the changing landscapes of the earth.
We're the island that won't sink.

But what we are
is just a part of ebb and flow.
We must ebb and flow.

Go. Go and don't come back.
Follow your current.
Don't look back.
