I wrote this two years ago, thinking back to the amazing sunset that I witnessed on the beach of Ostia Antica in Rome. I have never been more at peace than when I was there: on the far away beach of a foreign land, by myself, surrounded by black sand, pebbles, gentle waves and the occasional surfers and airplanes flying across the sunset. Ohhh, you should have been there to see it! It was a spectacle: full of possibilities and joy. There I believed in myself, and I loved myself for who I was and who I was going to be. I hope this poem brings to you that feeling of love and completeness that it brought me.
Somewhere, a long time ago There was this happiness that I knew Out of time it grew. The kind that settles deep within Breaks ground blooming Sprouting colors of joy Amidst the shadows of sky Golden, blush and purple Grey, blue and subtle. Sunsets are a lot like love Burning passion this moment Cooler warmth the next But forever the fulfillment Of two souls that magically met.
