A Couple (Poetry)

_Today I came to see her again,

Knowing that she is standing still on the bank

Alone, facing toward the sea

A habit she gets used to eventually

Day by day and day after day.

They told me her beloved is what she expected

But never knew it was me

Who brought her here every single day.

She never changes her facial expression

As a doll bears no human emotions.

But today I witnessed a miracle

Vividly upon her face — a smile.

And then she jumped into the sea…

A letter they found later goes like this:

“Everyday I come here for you alone

Knowing not if you’ll be home safe and sound.

The waves never cease beating

As my stubbornness the wind never stops mocking

Day by day and day after day.

I’ve known in the shade you always hid

But would never come back to me

Who brought you here every single day.

Why am I fooled by your indecision

As my heart is all ready to take its action?

My faith, as a pebble, I throw away

And my name — I leave it on the sand."_
