The grains of sand escape my cupped hand. I watched every single grain hit the warm brown land. The sea crashed a little bit farther, and ancient sea shells collected at it’s edge. My eyes wandered to the calm sea, and it’s soft music roamed through my mind. The night sky above hung over me like a wish, and my moon watched over me. My eyes wandered to my left, and the old house met it’s glance.
The hue of gray, hung over the house above the cliff. It overlooked the vast sea and was treated to its tranquility. There were kind-masters who roamed the house, and some who were unkind. In that house once dwelled people who loved to walk by the sea and some who hated its music. Through its old rooms little boys and girls had once laughed and played. Now it stood idle until a new master came along to take it to their name. My eyes filtered away from the house and I wondered what the future would hold for the old house and me. The future and its uncertainty haunted us both, alike.

Is That Nobody Really Me
The tress whispering secrets As I walked through the path The land washed away my sadness And my heart slowly fell apart
Wind rhymed with melodies That lost and became an elegy The sky blue like some memory I walk and realized I am a nobody
The clock ticked away slowly The time passed more bitterly Sleep consoled me nicely But the ache it never did leave me
A future light in my mind As the past erased itself I slept peacefully for the first time And walked away feeling more of myself
