Sadness, depression /
A beach was created
From waves of tears long shed
And blackened sand formed
From the ashes of bruises bled
A shadowy figure walks burning
Then swims in tides too high
A woman wandering lost with
Her death drawing nigh
She has no hope within her
No fear left in her bones
And more ashes grows beneath her
The sea drowning in her woes
Blissful daydreams are filled with
Memories of brighter times
But each thought brings downpours
As waters continue to climb
Sullen and alone she sits
Searching for the sun
Vacant eyes withheld her as
She found that there was none
An endless night, how can it be
How much more of this to bear
Lonely, cold and shattered
Her only friend - despair
That cladestine ocean rages on
The shadowy figure still seen
Lost and wandering endlessly on
The beach of dying dream
Some background. Black beaches are often found in volcanic areas. The black sand is known to be very hot, hence the burning of the woman.

This is a beautifully crafted poem.
Filled with powerful visuals and intense, metaphoric
messages. I do love having the background for the poem but as the reader this poem allowed me to take it beyond that. Very touching and powerful poem this week!

This is so unique - I love the imagery, so clear that I could almost taste the saltiness in the beach air. x
This is a fantastic visual write. Glad to see it has been nominated!
Thank you! I didn't realize it was nominated!
