sandcastle washed away.jpg

Borrowing water
from the
waves afar
somewhere
on the shore
painstakingly
a prized
sandcastle,
she built.

And in a
moment
of rare
distraction,
as she watched
the setting sun
pass on
the baton
of light,
to the dreamy
translucent moon,
an ignorant wave
intoxicated by
the change
of guard,
swept her
fingerprinted
hand molded
sand
away.

Till day
she walks
that lonely beach
looking for that
invisible spot
where her life’s
foundations
she had laid,
and somewhere
deep in the
recesses of
a wistful heart,
she still blames
an innocent moon
for stealing
her home away.

Trust sometimes,
is as fragile
as that
precious
sandcastleโ€™s
frame,
once gone,
it not only leaves
the fear
of building
it again,
but the search
for reasons
as to why
it didnโ€™t last,
is as endless
as finding
the spot,
where it had
originally
been built.
