This heart is drowning. A rope comprised of "I hate" the actual hearts own hate, is tied around the heart which is comprised of "love". Although the heart is larger and more buoyant the thin rope of hate triumphs because it comes from within the same heart. The love is dissolving, becoming diluted and unrecognizable in a sea of heartbreak. The sea is tinted green to represent jealousy and greed, places where hate dwells.
