Friday Fictioneers | Into The Light

I walk away.
I turn back.
Sun hits sea hits sand.
They look out to the horizon as I look out to them.
They’re a lighthouse not bright enough to warn me of surrounding dangers.
It was lust. It was love. It was fear and pain.
They hit me, apologised and did it again.
I knew it was my fault. I was salty waves eroding their temper.
Until I knew it wasn’t my fault.
They were the darkest ocean chipping at my soul.
Finally free I look back only to see the beauty of distance from the monster to me.

  1. Wow! WOW! That is a very powerful write you have there. It’s deeper than the ocean upon which it was written. I better watch out… I might drown my keyboard for the tears. Wow!
