I lay reposed in the sand, surrounded by the laughter of jovial children and the rhythmic crashing of waves against the shore. But what preoccupies my mind is not a state of calm, nor is it happiness, but instead the ruthless waves raging in my heart. I came to this beach seeking calm… Expecting this place of joy and tranquility to relieve tension.
Instead it only furthered my demise, and I am not sure why that is. Perhaps the combination of the cruel sun leaving me drained of energy and the splattering of the waves evokes a certain calm of mind which leads me to consider things. Wistfully, all that appears in my mind as I ponder is that fateful day. I can still visualize that tear-ridden expression on her beautiful face as she turns to go… I reach after her, but in vain. And now she is gone. My heart gone with her.
