A stunning calm set as day turned to night. My eyes adjust to the magnificent shades of purple that lay before my eyes. I was alone. The way it had been intended. Through the shadows of the palm trees I could see his face. His longing, the same longing I felt when he touched me. That time has passed and there will never be another. No color of the sky, waves of the ocean, breeze in the night air or the shadows cast could ever change my fate. I imagine myself out along the shore, leaving behind my sorrows.
