It Was Just a Sand Castle

Sandcastles are made to be enjoyed while they last because no matter how much you want to keep them, the tide will claim over. Just like everything else on the shore, waves will wash away all of it. What will be left are the memories that were made.


I am alone in my room
Wandering what went wrong
It used to be so much fun
Now I feel nothing but pain

Am I the one to be blamed?
I am confused, I don’t understand
You can at least explain
Because it’s driving me insane

All I did was to love and care for you
Out of the blue you said we are through

For you, I used to be the only one
Walked together holding hands
We used to share our dreams
At night as we watched the stars falling

I miss the songs we used to sing
Even most of the time I just scream
I miss your laugh that is so sweet
And kissing your soft rosy cheek

All I did was to love and cherish you
Out of the blue you said we are through

What we had is like a sand castle
Built during the low tide
Made out of sand bonded with water
And be washed away at high tide

Maybe if you would have wanted me
I could’ve sprinkled it with my heart’s blood
Maybe if you have just asked me
I would have fortified it against the tide

All I ever wanted is to be and next to you
Out of the blue you said we are through
Now I am lost with a bleeding heart
You could have said goodbye, at least

About R.S. Mallari

Through poetry I am trying to break the barriers of ethnicity, cultures and even beliefs for we humans have the same emotions, the same desires and aspirations. We may differ in colors, in language, and food that we eat yet we are still living under the same sun, swimming and sailing on the same seas and sleeping under the same stars.

Through poetry we can inspire others, we can make someone smile and words can make others cry be it of joy or sadness.
