Days of Emptiness

She sits by herself on the grains of white sand basking in the warmth of sunshine staring out at the sea while waves of sapphire blue crept towards her. Tears stream down her face, another day of emptiness, another day filled with pain. This was where they made love when they first met under the cover of midnight and the waves' lullaby. She closed her eyes thought erupt in her soul holding him once more leaving a calm. He was gone. Or was he? 11/6/2018

Eve, this was gorgeous and heart touching and I like how the ending leaves it open for perhaps a little happiness to appear. I love the word choices in this and how it rhythmically flows like the sea she is gazing upon. Best of luck in the contest
