Second changes can be great, if you don't wait too long.
by Amber "V" Moonstone
From the darkness,
you peer across the sand
straining to see.
how the blackness of the ocean,
illuminates your mind,
with thoughts of awe
and rememberance of days gone by,
when you were young and vibrant.
Wind chilling your weary bones,
winter has begun,
but the ocean remains the same
as if it were that same dark summer night.
Years have passed since you were to see her,
the dark haired beauty,
standing on the shore waiting for your arrival,
the rendevous that never transpired.
You were delayed,
couldn't get out of the airport,
missed your train,
never arriving on time.
Heartbroken, she left for the countryside,
never to return to the rendevous point,
never to know what happened to you,
never to forgive you for breaking her heart.
Now forty years later,
you try again,
but she isn't there,
she hasn't arrived.
The beach looks the same,
the wind feels the same,
as that fateful night that you
showed up ten hours too late.
As you turn to walk away,
you hear your name being called,
a young girl runs toward you,
She tells you that her grandmother has just died.
You fall to your knees,
and weep for all the lost time,
your second chance now has failed,
and the beach looks the same...................
Rendevous (c) Amber "V" Moonstone

|Heartstopping and haunting, Amber. The "what ifs" forever reverberate and echo through each stirred thought and feeling of our lives and that much-longed for second chance will either be grasped or evaded with the lapse of time - or, perhaps, with the sense of the lack of it, as here. I love your motif of the unchangeing beach... yes, indeed; the physical world remains constant through all of our human passages and travails, tricking us into thinking that time itself stands still. To the unrequited heart, if does. Lovely work as always. xx|

|The heartbreak of missed opportunity, missed chances, lost romance. There have been so many rendezvous like that. I recall one of my own. Time passes. We can never recall the mistakes we made, only move forward and hope for the best.
The granddaughter was nice twist… We're left wondering if she is his child.

|This hits very close to me, Amber. My first wife and I were about to "try it again," but she came down with cancer of the brain and died in agony.|

|this is deja voodoo at its best, Amber... you set a delicious tone and move with relentlessly eerie precision to a famous final scene that drips deliberate irony all over a deserted debacle... this backdrop is back lit by a moody and sombre moon, Ms. Moonstone... romantic and irredeemably restive all at once...
Be well, live long, laugh often, and never look back... unless you're writing poetry, which of course you cannot help but do well.
