SHADOWS IN MY EYES

On 14th Feb, valentines day I spent my afternoon lying lazily on the hammock at the beach pondering over the dreams of my youths with truth constantly reflecting wondering if true love ever exists gazing blindly around not sure of what I see At the periphery of the beach a pretty lady in a blue bikini seats alone she seems busy for herself sieving sand between her fingers. a fragrant breeze blows as her lovely curly hair responds her lips so soft and red her eyes, sparkling like stars in the sky staring at them I felt like I was soaring high she initiates a smile which blows me away feeling my heart with regrets why love never led me to the right person A dark gentle man cladded in a pair of slacks walks towards her seems her counterpart right by his right hand he helps her up on her legs she embraces him warmly stricken by envy, I feign a smile as I watch romance take the better of them. walking hand in hand the two begin to ease into a special place a special place for lovers The lovers nest, a romantic thrill at the end of the beach these are only but, shadows in my eyes.

Oh, Oliver, so sad to be watching this and knowing it can't be you with the girl. I have had those thoughts and even wrote of this before, seeing two lovebirds and wanting that so badly for myself! (the fun of youth and romance!) WEll shown here.
