Watching Through Salty Eyes

I watch the wave,

come in,

go out,

come in,

go out.

Softly brushing the white sand,

of a bloody beach.


I watch the fronds,

sway back,

sway forth,

sway back,

sway forth.

Softly brushing the white clouds,

of a darkened sky.


I watch the water on the rocks,

crash up,

slide down,

crash up,

slide down.

Softly molding the rocks,

wearing them thin.


I watch you,



Were you here the whole time?


You run,

keep running,

you sprint,

keep running.

you fly,

keep running!


I reach out to hug you,



Our lips meet softly.


And then you fade,

keep fading,


keep fading,

fade away into the sand.


And I close my salty eyes.
