to be with the summer people

i want to be with the summer people
those girls with tangled salted hair
and men with shoulders tanned
want to sit among them with my
brine of loneliness, raise my
head to see the whole troupe crashing
naked toward the tides, moonlight
drenching – one man coming back…

    smiles…the one coming back for you…maybe…ha…i feel you though its good to be around happy people….loneliness sucks…

    ah…me, too, I want to see that. Love this–the totally complete picture, the sense of longing–can almost taste the salt…excellent writing.

  3. “Brine of loneliness” I like that line 🙂

    Nice write 🙂

  4. I really like this.

    There's the clear cut summer images, then that last line which, it's got something about it. Something great.

    Nice work here.
