Setting Sail

Though you have been
A fair wind
Billowing my sails
My heart still craves
New shores
To beach my skiff upon
And it aches
For fresh new lands
Beneath my feet
So I must go
For you deserve better
And it would not
Be fair on you
If I were to settle
For my first port of call

Distant horizons

The poem offers the type of 'let you down gently, I'm not worthy, I'm leaving now' message which can do little to ease the pain as a relationship breaks down.
