I escaped–
treated myself to
a snippet of paradise
on an island far
away from what I knew
as home.

you wanted to join me.
I declined.
the sound of the waves
crashed at my ears
as I sipped my
specialty drink with the
little pink umbrella.
I never even thought
of you one time.

I would not give
you the satisfaction
of ruining my experience
alone with ME.
you'd love to know
the sadness of my
aching body, if I
were thinking of you.

but, I am not.



so, I have my specialty
drink, the little pink
umbrella, waves crashing at
my ears, and no
thoughts of you.

and this...
this is bliss.
