This ocean town

October 7, 2007
By Samantha Chaves, Hudson, MA

This ocean town is deserted tonight,
the moonlight sky gives off little light.
Summer has come and gone.
Another season; faded away.
The waves crash and the dunes sway.
The ocean wraps around my ankles,
but it makes me feel safe.
This winter may be a cold one,
although that salted body of water will ever freeze.
I wish I had a heart like that,
that way, I would never forget that misty breeze.
The tide keeps moving in closer,
like it is reminding me to leave.
I look around, and before my words can escape from me, just a wave of my hand says it all.
I turn away and I walk into the cool and misty fall.
