At twilight



The sea is dark.. calm waves lap at my feet..
A tidal waves churns inside me.. tears flow freely... i hug myself.. i feel cold

Knees buckle, flop down, my heart too heavy and I lose myself in the oceans' rhythm.
It's over but i can't get over it.. in my mind i want you to go away.. but my heart knows.. it wants you to stay..

My fingers play with the wet sand and before i realise what i'm doing, they write your name.. clear and bold... embossed and engraved.. a tear falls on you... your name.. it smudges it a little.. blurs it.. past my tear-filled eyes...

And, i smile.. i know what to do...

I stay a few more minutes and then get up..

I walk away and look back just once to watch the waves wash you away... your name away...

remember the optimistic person who went to shit in the sea shore and waited for the waves to come and clean his bum...

the tsunami came.. and it washed him
