The sand between my toes is reassuring, but not comforting. The jagged rocks taunt me; bringing to my mind unwanted memories. I take another step towards the water.

Please. Bleach my thoughts, taint them with hope. Howl through my ears, wind, and drown out my sorrows. I feel unheard as the broken glass and shells cut my feet like broken dreams shred lives. I take another step into the water.

The waves wash away the blood, the pain and despair. The salt stings, but cleans the wound, healing. A lonely seagull echoes my silent cries. My salty tears stain my cheeks. The waves hit the shore, Crashing steadily, like my beating heart. I take another step, My cleansed soul finding the peace.
