I sit and wait each morning
The path leads to the beach
I watch you as you walk on by
So close…..yet out of reach.
You’ve never even noticed me
Sitting here upon this bench
A stalker …. a sad voyeur
Feeling anxious…. feeling tense.
Into the water… off you go
You swim all by yourself
If you were drowning ….I’d be there
I’d hear you cry for help.
A shark attack …. can happen fast
One could tear you … limb from limb
Don’t get too close …. be careful
Best to stay away from them.
Your hair is wet …. you’re shivering
You reach for your beach towel
I watch you from a distance
That’s how it is …. for now.
