Sideways rain cascades down
onto the storm tossed sandy shore,
on the beach he’s the only one around
others took shelter in the clubhouse hall
but there is no shelter for the heartbroken!
Through the storm he walks; alone
his heart shattered and missing a home,
he wishes he did not need her
On his clothes is still her smell
it tortures him like being in the hot chains of hell.
To his knees he collapses onto the sand
a lone crab scurries over his hand
he wishes he was still her man
why she cheated he doesn’t understand.
For the heartbroken time doesn’t wait
slowly the summer storm starts to abate
he wishes her he could hate
but; to him, she was his soulmate.
Love carries on through the scars
One can find a way to heal,
if one has the patience to.
