two loving hands created the castle of sand.molding it with utmost love and care, to make it a place of their own,dream after their hearts and the union of their soul and the symbol of their love.Eyes had met shyly,smile had reflected in each others lips.fingers touched and hesitantly brushed away.his hand tucks the loose strands away from her face as she lowers her eyes,blushing.promises were made to last a lifetime and undying love was professed.it was time to rejoice!then the sun reached its throne and reigned,the sea turtles and crabes came for a visit and were bravely encountered but the hands never moved,still guarding the sand castle.swollen and bitten,yet braving each wave,that threatened to wash away the dream,then the rain came pelting down yet they remained where they were, braving it all....

then one huge wave came threatening along..it had been ages since they were there..backs ached and the sun had been dethroned and it was time to let go...love had dimmed and it was getting dark.she tried to hold off the wave as he gave up and trampling the castle and went ahead,giving up.she did all she could to prevent her castle from being washed away and she did,but he had already ruined it all.the sun had set on love.there she sat in the after glow mourning for what was and never could be.soaked to the skin,tears fell uncontrolably blurring her vision sobs racked her body as it lay there limp out in the cold as wave after came anc washed her sand castle away, her perfect life falling apart.she knows nothing can make up for what she went through,she knows that now life would just be a charade without him,she is aware but she must do it.she must make an exit.for nothing will ever make up for what was before and no longer so.she knows she will be blamed so she has nothing to do but submit to to it willingly.her mind fragmenting just at the thought of walking away from the ruins of their dreams but she must for there is no other way.she knows if she does he wont be there to call her back,persuading her to stay,she knows the love for her will be replaced by hate and resentment but she must walk away with a leaden heart and mind gone astray,to preserve her sanity and the love that kindles her heart even now but she must leave.she walks ahead as he lets her go not knowing what he has lost untill its too late.his calls will never be answered,his cries will never be heard.yet somewhere the love will be nurtured and kept alive, even when the sand castle had fallen to fate

Hey you hv written a thoughtful post. food for thought. Any relationship needs to be nurtured and worked along from both the stakeholders. it aint job of one of the partner to keep giving and the other one to just keep taking it.

Walking out of any relationship is bitter , love when ends, it messes and the soul gets wrecked. i m too gyanni this days,, but fair enough.

Take care and thanks for wonderful comment on my post.

i think the setting Sun had darkened her Vision...or else why would such pessimistic thoughts cloud up her mind???May be the Vision of them standing the test of time and protecting their very own sand castle from all odds in life...somehow got blurred somewhere dwn da line....One needs to remind the other constantly about da importance of Their Sand Castle and continue on....on an optimistic note-If the hv stood da test of Time for so long...then why not the entire Life Time...and if they had grown so used to each otherz company...am sure he will realise that somethingz amiss and come back to her... May be all they need to do is rediscover dere lost Vision...
