Tucked Away

Poem by Jennifer Sol

A quiet little community tucked away
In an overlooked corner of the sea
Quaint cottages line the vast beach
This is where she goes to get away
Leaving footprints in the sand
She escapes the pain
Dulled to a numb throbbing
The warmth of a fireplace ember
Brings a rare visitor to her face
A smile so beautiful and radiant
It’s a shame it’s always tucked away
In this community by the sea
She finds peace
If only she could find refuge forever
But, she must face her fears and go back home
No longer can the pain remain tucked away

    Beauty, pain, peace, solitude.......a poem of contrasts. I wonder what's going through her mind? And why?
