Eventually it was physically impossible for me to proceed without losing eye contact with him. He smiled at me, and with a final glance I turned the corner and walked back towards the dorm.

I knew that if I turned around I could still catch sight of him walking into the building, but for some reason, I just kept my head forward. That was the last time that I saw him.

For You

The sun rises and progression continues
I will lose you in a couple of hours
But only for a short while as the hours tick by
And the moon rises and falls once again

So Much for the Shack

Ten years later later I came back to our old street at Bethany Beach after my parents had bought a house that was across the street from the beach, on the Bay side.

I went to go look at that green shack, just to see if it was still there, and of course, it was gone. In its place was a 3 million dollar brand new beach house, three stories, four car garage, balconies and wrap-around screened-in porches on each floor.
