Ready to Hang
I walked the long walk through Tennessee Valley and finally got to the hidden beach beneath. Shielded by the rocky landforms I let the salty water wash my feet. The weather was calm, the waves sang to me but all I could think about was him.
That he may feel an unquenchable hunger when we are apart, one that can only be satisfied when we reunite. That our union would be like two legs walking in sync , left for right and right for left. That his heart will beat inside of mine and mine inside of his like a baby in its mothers womb, impossible to live without. That the oceans that separate us will always bring us back together. That we shall once more walk by the beach, leaving out footprints in the sand and watching the sun set while we hold hands, look into each other’s eyes, lost in awe ………. Lost without you
