Saltiness

The rugged skin of the rock felt chilly
and the ocean whispered in the night.
Their eyes were on fire
seeking for appeasement.
Painful was their realization
of limited possibilities of time
to change conditions
and the words remained unspoken.
He felt the salty taste upon her cheeks
and tenderly
he pulled her shivering body next to his.
The ocean continued whispering:
- For ever, for ever gone.
