Picture Prompt #2

***This is the 2nd picture prompt from John over at The Eclectic Contrarian. 
Sorrowfully
my eyes drawn to the never ending 
flow of water
that surrounds my castle of sand.
I long for 
yearn for
ache for your return 
night after night
only hearing the lap of water
lull-a-bye 
sweet good night.
sheltered beneath lashes
tear glazed cheeks
heart wracked
destroyed
by the cruelness of fate.
Time lapses
no change in the tide
ebb
wane
full moon pregnant with hope
searing sun
beating down
tiara built of shells.
Siren of the sea
temptress
moored upon my lonely rock
waiting….. 
waiting…..
waiting…..
knowing one day
you will come back…..
April 7/19
