The Horizon

Standing at the edge of the surf-
Breeze blowing in light gusts-
My dress whipping back and forth
against my legs-
The waves break softly across my ankles
as my feet sink with each wave
Staring out into the horizon, the moon begins it’s ascent.
The sun has set behind me, only a slight glow remains.
An overwhelming feeling envelops me as I stare into oblivion.
A feeling of great love and tremendous loss.
My heart remembers the giddy child-like feeling I had
Last year – standing in this very place.
I never thought I would ever feel that way again.
Now my heart is so very heavy and empty and Alone.
I know now- I will never feel that way again- my heart
just couldn’t take it, not again.
Days like these should be forbidden
