Beach Walks

I walk with my grandmother

Alongside the beach

Sand in my hair

The salt in my lungs

We talk about life

About my dogs

About her German food

We catch up

But then I wake up

She’s gone

No more walks along the beach

No more talks about dogs

No more talks about German food

I am filled with a painful ache

It throbs inside my chest

Released in my tears

Hi! I am Anja, a 16 year old from right outside of D.C. I enjoy taking photos and writing about people's perceptions of the world around them.
