Boy & Girl Lost

a boy and a girl
drove until they lost track
got out and walked
until it got dark
hid in a cave on the beach
no idea where they were
or where they were going
the girl said to the boy
I’m scared
the boy said to the girl
Do you want to go back?
the girl said
No
the boy said
What are you afraid of?
the girl said
That this moment is already fading
Even though I’m sitting right here
The older I get
The more I want to be a child again
I wanted there to be so much more
the boy stared out at the waves
You don’t want to be with me?
The girl placed her hand on the rocky wall
That’s not it
I don’t want to be me anymore
the boy took her hand
You know this cave has probably been here
For thousands of years
It has seen many suns and moons
Each year it slowly erodes
Bit by bit
One day it will fade
As will you
It just won’t take as long
the girl smiled
In the meantime?
the boy shrugged
For now
We will keep this cave company
