Too much of a beach


Pleasurable only in a fair weather,
When you are not in it for long.
Too much of a beach
Is not good for anyone.
It’s only when you stay long enough,
You understand the scorching heat
You realize what oceans of water can do
The way it mirrors the merciless sun,
The salt it rubs in your wounds,
The burns you get,
The way they hurt.
How you wish
You had left long ago.

Likewise,
You get all scorched
When you overstay in an intense,
But essentially toxic relationship.
