Ocean Blues 


By: Cindy Cruz-Guzman


I emerge from the cold water

onto the hot sand.

Looking over an infinite body of blue,

reminiscing your presence.

Feeling your absent warmth from the sun.

I look around,

hoping to catch a glimpse of a memory of us,

or maybe someone who I could mistake as you.

I will never see you again…

there will only be pieces of you in every person that I find.

digging in the sand to fulfill the emptiness in me,

using distractions to erase your embrace.

I find shells and like a child I’m amused

I’m happy for a moment, I’ve escaped my mind.

For a second I am free,

For a second I’ve paused reality.
