Take my hand, sweet love.
We'll go walking on the beach.

First, we'll start here.
This place, the part of the beach where everyone knows somebody.
Here, we don't know eachother.
But...
Let's keep walking.

We'll head to the next place,
Hello, nice to meet you.
We're just aquaintances.
Pass each other, without a glance,
Sinking in the sand.
But...
Let's keep walking.


Here we are.
Hello, again.
This place is where we fall.
Watch your step, but don't worry.
I'll catch you.
Here is where you kiss me.
But...
Let's keep walking.

Next, we'll go to the bad part of the beach.
It is rocky. We stop holding hands.
We'll walk the hills, up and down, up and down.
Be careful, you could get hurt.
We could take seperate paths.
Don't forget me though.
I won't forget you.
But...
Let's keep walking.

I think we'll go to the best place of all.
Here, you grab my hand again.
Here, we find the right path, the same path.
This is where we kiss again.
Pressing lips for what feels like an eternity.
The weather gets hot, we shred our clothes.
We kiss again, and again, and again.
You know, this is the best place of all.
But...
One day, gradually,
We've got to keep walking.

Maybe we'll head to an even brighter side of the beach.
One where its just you and me.
We'll be alone.
Kissing more. Always kissing more.
Maybe there you'll never let go of my hand.
Maybe there I'll fall harder than I still do.
But there, I won't worry, you'll catch me.
This side of the beach will go on and on.
For eternity.
I promise.
That side of the beach will only end when we can't walk anymore.

love how you use a beach as a metaphor for a relationship. So original! I love this so much! Great job!

Most people don't know how they're gonna feel from one moment to the next, but a dope fiend has a pretty good idea. They just look at the labels on the little bottles.

This is beautiful. Easily a favorite. I love it. I am engulfed in passion from reading this.
