That Summer

March 2, 2018

Cousins laughing on warm sand
Splashing in the ocean
I wanted to be happy
Anxieties ate at my heart
As if they were starving

A cotton candy sunset on the beach
Everything was beautiful
Except for my thoughts
That the world would be
A better place without me

I had no reason to be sad
Or angry, or hurt, or upset
No one understood
The aching I felt in my soul

That summer I learned how to be alone
