“I can write the saddest poem of all tonight. I loved her, and sometimes she loved me too.”
Here on the sea glass littered sandy shore
Only gulls can hear my anguished cries over the roar
So I burden the sapphire ocean with wrenching sorrows,
Mingling my blinding tears with its briny waters.
I scream at the emptiness your leaving has created,
I mourn for our perfect love now crumbling, eroded
With each harsh bitter word and acrid falling tear
The waves pull me in, take me farther from shore.
And here is where I will remain, forever more.
