My eyes searched for her on the horizon,
On the line where the sky dipped into the sea. I looked for her in the gravel and stones, in the pockets where the wind swam through the curves. If I'd looked into my reflection, into my eyes and into my heart, I would've found her. Perhaps that is why I never did, afraid that I would run back to the same pain that numbed me if I saw her smile and call my name.
