Shell

i have a shell
it glows
in the sun's bleeding rays
iridescent
sherbet colors
crystallized ny the
salt
that dries the throat
a bystander
trembles at the sight,
the standstill
virulence
of an everyday
sandy
shell.
i retreat inside,
two star-crossed lovers
uncross themselves
the waves
dampen
the dried
out
emotion
of my crusty shell
and wash away my
salty
tears.
i retreat into my
shell,
fall to the bottom
of the
ocean,
i do not
resurface.
