I’ll be a seashell
Floating in the time of your tide.
Take me to places
I’ve never been.
I don’t care—
I’ll follow your waves.
I don’t have a direction,
So grind me
Pieces of me
Turned into sand.
I don’t care—
Toss me in your waters.

Lift me up
And let me fall.

can i be a seashell?
part of a whole
forgotten, buried in sediment
slowly chipping away
and turning into sand

can i be a seashell?
found amongst the grain
an incomplete half
yet kept solely
because they found me pretty

can i be a seashell?
a collector's item
displayed on a shelf
collecting dust

it's better than wasting away
only to get kicked up
or thrown in someone's eyes

i wish i was
a seashell.

A person with physical beauty lacking
insight is like a seashell without pearl.

Memories are porous
like seashells with nano holes.
Peace escapes 
this permeable space,
choking it with clamor.

Future - the black hole
swallows the past sans remorse,
amnesia struggles in amniotic fluid,
an echo rebounds 
Silence is bearable now.

sea shell girl lost in the waves
she went out to play and was missing for days
no one really noticed her where she was laid
a little sea shell crack littered her face
feeling lost myself

if you took a hammer,  

cracked open my cranium

and placed the open skull to your ear,

you can listen to the song of love i have for you

as it swings and swells in time  

to the oceans of loneliness &  


still singing.

He gave her the sea,
when he as the ocean.
He gave you a sea shell,
when all he has was a sea shell.

shoreline littered

broken shells,

bits of seagrapes,

parts of a dead crab,

and footprints.
