Those Beachside Fantasies

couple-677585

 

Those beachside fantasies

Her returning to my mind

A short-lived summer love

Tracking down what I won’t find

It was a patriotic stance

I believe it was July fourth

Still sorry she couldn’t stay

Time for her to head back north

Though we still had one night

She was beautiful as could be

Wrapped loosely in that flag

On the shores of a moonlit sea

I sit drinking Lonesometown brew

A strategically placed heartbreak

Try to give her the benefit of the doubt

Can’t deny all the pain left in her wake
