I buried the necklace, you sent to me
Deep in the sand, at the edge of the sea
I took a deep breath, and cast it away
Along with the memories, of that painful day
There was no sentiment, there was no charm
It just sat there, a reminder of harm.
Like a noose, it hung us both
Delaying love, refusing growth
I’d try and try, but could never wear it
Delicate yet heavy, I just couldn’t bear it.
Half a year now, in this full term delay
For us to be ‘us’, I pray every day
I walked on the sand, on that special beach
Where I first met love, my heart within reach.
I sat in our spot, where often we sat
Do you ever… EVER… think about that?
