    Don't want to have me.
    If you had me, you wouldn't want me.
    Just want me.

    Beaches are cold during the winter.
    It should be winter more often,
    it's more, original.

    People don't like it, but I do.
    Only people who love it, go there.

    Cold sand stings.. it's not a pleasant place to stay.
    Winds chase and there's always the fact, that I don't have a jacket.

    Dragging your feet, makes it harder to leave.
    Maybe you drag your feet, because it's harder to leave.

    I like sunsets. They still look the same when the sand is cold.
    Sunrises have attitude.

    Beginnings always have more life than ends.

    Cold sand wouldn't seem like a very appealing thing, except that you can't feel your feet or where you're going.

    There's always biting water that will nip at my ankles. Or snap. And seagulls squawk because I'm the intruder.

    Maybe the sea gulls squawk because they're saying Hello. Maybe they're just as lonely as I am.

    I found some pretty shells.
    They were all broken.

    Unusual things happen when the sand is cold.

    The sea spray caught my face, and I know it was completely intentional.

    And the remnant of a child's curiosity,
    urged me to lick my lips.

    I savored its taste in the same moment that I spat it out.
    Sharp and Bitter and.. Salty
    Salt tastes good, it's almost.. Sweet.

    Oceans feel cold, but only when the sand is.
    The sand isn't cold enough to clear my mind,
    maybe the water is.

    It would take my breath away..
    There's no lifeguards when the sand is cold.

    I don't like sunsets, I like stars.
    Stars only shine after the sunset has gone.

    The beach is only pretty
    when the sand is cold
    before the day begins.

    I hate the beach, but cold sand and sea spray makes me.. mmm

      i dont like the beach very much when it is too warm and i like the stars better aswell
    sometimes the winter time is good and sometimes it is bad but usualy good. i like to pretend like i dont know how cold it is outside and jsut dress in whatever and act like i didnt know and try to go along with it. i like the sound it makes when i scuff my feet through the sand

      i still love your writting...beautiful...this is how my brother writes...or at least the same style...don't remeber what it's called..but you have a topic than set a moment but don't write about one thing for more than two lines...it's not exactly like that...but i think it suits what your feeling.

      I like this one a lot. I can't say exactly why, but I definitely like the format. It's original and unique. Nicely done. The wording was good, so was the imagery. It was real too. Most of the time when people are just thinking about everything and nothing, that's what their thought process is like.

      Beautiful writing, Reid. I love the style you use here, an unaimed trail of thoughts, but with a sort of logical succession to them.

    I don't see why anyone else didn't say this, but this poem just leaves me with a sense of mystery. It seems to leave a few questions unanswered, though I don't know what they are.

      holy caca i really really like that! it was so friggin relaxing to read :) i have just a couple of critiques: get rid of alot of your commas, many of them don't seem to belong; "There's no lifeguards" should either be "there's no lifeguard" or "there are no lifeguards". that's it. beautiful read ;)

      Amazing work...so original and unique. well written and, well, just damn beautiful. Great job. Never walked in cold sand myself...but barefoot in the snow...not really a comparison though...the only thing you think of walking barefoot in the snow is getting some boots on! LOL Great work!

      My God that was brilliant. It is so unique. I've never read anything like it. It had so many ideas that I had never thought of...like liking the beach only when the sand and water were cold. Very good! Definately going on my favourites list.

      this is very good. i can't remember the last time i read something here (aside from the work of a few writers i know alreadly) and thought, wow. this is so alive.. every word is calling..

    i love this line:

    Cold sand wouldn't seem like a very appealing thing, except that you can't feel your feet or where you're going.

    brilliant. a fav!

      Well I have to say that this piece is very original. I like finding differant styles, and this one is nice. It gave me the image of some wise old rambling beach bum, what is being said is so genuine, and from the heart. I have a poem , "the drunkard at seas edge" and it's got a cold beach in it as well. gulls too. Anyway, Cool work. Very original
