                hand side border

Solitude seeps through me
Lapping at my feet
Gently washing me clean
Soaking away the knots
Tightening through my body
For all I know
I could be the last human alive tonight
I have never felt so alone
Yet utterly complete
The cool dusk air cleanses
The sand beneath my feet grounds
The sea's constant rhythm soothes
And finally I know who I am.
