My Forever

Sand invades the space between my toes

As a foamy ocean wave sweeps over them.

The water is blue as ever

Creating white bubbles when they crash,

Bubbles that will always pop

Once the tide recedes.

 

I hear the call of the seagulls from above,

A desperate attempt at communication.

Beachgoers laugh while playing volleyball,

Cry when sand crawls into their eyes,

And smile throughout the sandcastle-building experience.

Distinct sounds,

Yet they hold equally powerful meanings.

 

The aroma of sandwiches and an assortment of snacks

Wafts through my nostrils.

The scents of the beach

And the crystal water

Are memorable ones,

That can be carried on forever.

 

The brutal taste of the ocean,

Bitterness slapping at my tastebuds

Causes my nose to burn

And my tongue to scream out in pain.

While the bland taste of the sand

As I crunch it with two teeth

Brings me a grin just the same.

 

The water feels frigid when overwhelming my feet,

Forming a nice contrast with the scorching sand.

The sun beats down on my skin

Warmth shielding me from any meandering dangers.

Salty kisses shared among you and me

Make the beach my refuge,

An escape,

My forever.
