back for more

she sold her soul to the mountains
promised not to fall for the ocean
like the last time

but from afar she saw
alluring waves, coming to kiss the shore
over and over again
she remembered what it felt like
when they caressed her toes

one day when
the aching was too much,
she walked down the memory lane
as pristine sand led her
to where the sea was waiting

where the waves kept crashing into her
and she remembered what it felt like
to be drenched in their love


written for the last day of napowrimo, “things that happen over and over”
