A Lonely Heart
Poem By william mae
At the ocean, slowly walking,
At the waters edge I stand.
While the breeze blows ore my body,
I slide my fingers through the sand.
As the mist comes off the water,
I taste the salt upon my lips.
I see two children building castles,
And in the distance,
I wonder if our love is like this,
Passing close but cannot touch.
I quickly think of something different,
To my heart this thoughts too much.
Sand crabs dance across the shoreline,
Dart into their homes beneath,
Stick their head out slowly,
As I pass they take a peak.
The smell of freshness overwhelming,
The ocean green then turns to blue.
Down the shoreline I keep walking,
But my thoughts return to you.
I look up and see a figure,
And this picture made me sigh.
My heart beat fast, for just a moment,
But it's not you that passes by.
So I walk on, into the evening,
Placing wishes to despair,
But as the sun sets on the ocean,
I know your love won’t find me there.
