1.1-1.7: The Cave

Every step along the coastline
Produces a crunch beneath our feet.
The sand can’t escape the ocean.
The salty air tastes so sweet,
We find cover in a dark cave
Whose walls sweat with clinging dew.
I can run away from beach waves,
But I can’t run away from you.
Your eyes can hide desires.
So I decide to peel them back.
I don’t find what I admire.
I find only dirty, stained, and black.
By now it’s far too late.
Your breathing comes full stop.
Lying lifeless is your fate.
You are safe, but I am not.

I didn’t know what to feel, but now you’re gone.
I didn’t know what to do when your mom called us home.
I bolt.
I left.
What have you done?
