Distant Shores III

I walk away from the bungalow, sand in my toes
I try to forget you, all the hurt and my woes
Life seems unfair at times, it doesn’t make sense
I thought you loved me, it must have been pretense

I walk along the rocky cliff as I start to head back 
As I peer over the cliff the water looks so black
Feeling depressed, I want to jump into the water
My life has been so crazy, would it really matter?

I get closer to the edge and I hear someone yelling
I feel large arms pull me away, it is so compelling
A beautiful man has a hold of me and doesn’t let go
He said I could have been killed, as if I didn’t really know

He grabbed my hands and led me down the rocks
He asked if we could sit, try to relax and have a talk
I said no, and started to argue with some heated strife
He smiled, as he said I would since he just saved my life

We walked to our cars, weirdly parked so close
He said his name is Frank and lives here on the coast
He said he lives alone and wants to bring me there
I agreed, not really caring about myself to have any fear

You can't leave me in suspense. Is there a sequel to this intriguing story ? Very nicely written.

Intriguing, the cliff dive may end up being preferable.
