Salt tangled hair-
damp bathers cling against skin.
The seat-belts metal tongue leaves a scalding imprint.
Grains of sand dabble throughout the car.
Bare feet scatter across sun drenched asphalt.
Fish and chips linger within the ocean breeze.
Seagulls beg and pine for a chip or two.
Ice-cream seeps along sunburnt arms.
Sun shies away upon the horizon.
Such a day comes to an end-
as the waves calm towards the night.

for all she has seen-
for all the heart ache she has felt.
have guided her through-
the labyrinths of life.
Here we go again-
around the Merry-go-round.
Doors shut tight.
Curtains drawn shut.
No joyous sounds around.
No freedom out-and-about.
Let’s all hope.

Hands over eyes, phones half way down our throats, choking, suffocating on these likes and hearts and everything in-between.

You’re outmatched. predisposition to failure. Human instinct out the window, failure will seep in.
Chances are all questions won’t have answers. The finite knowledge us human have as a collective is extraordinary minimal. To that of the universes. Yes! I said universes. Surely and most certainly there is more than one. I lean towards the side of infinite.
Lights, ambient. Such ambience. Escapism at its finest. Slowly, gently. Peace flow through.
Freely….ever freely. Wandering, wonder what wonders way weightless ahead.
Blink. Blink. Brutal battles brace bravely beyond.
Caught, countess, calmly clings. Claw, clawing coward.
Rivers rapidly rally repeatedly ruthless.
Fear, finding, failure frightful fellow.
Strength strides selflessly. Stronger shall she shine.
