Dad looked at him
Up and down in disgust
Mum said he wasn’t ...
What they had in mind
Her world turned grey

Her brown eyes long
To cry an endless river
Every cell in her body
Had died a thousand deaths

Her suffocated lungs long
To inhale his sweet scent
And know that he’s around

Her empty arms long
For his loving embrace
His love, his warmth

Her aching heart longs
To be with the man she loves
Every night she cries in her sleep
But she can’t be with him.

She’s only a sea shell
Carried by the swirling ocean
Washed upon a deserted island
An empty sea shell
An ocean without water
A rose without flowers
A sky without the moon
A life without love
Happiness is just a dream
