The Beginning

I stay in the sea, staring out towards the balcony.

Where I once lived, and finally died.

It was a low railing, easy to vault over.


Dawn comes and the light shines brightly on the beach, yet still I remain.

People walk past, I yearn for them to remember me. They do not,  so I remain.

Tide sweeps in like a plague, it clears the beach, yet I remain.

Dusk is upon me, the wind resumes it's howling and I remain.

I realise that my stay here is eternal, and so I remain.




The End
