A Nautilus Shell

In the company of none
A nautilus shell
Is stranded on a beach.

It had to succumb
To the mighty swells
That caused itself to breach.

Lost on an isle
That's lost in an ocean
That's lost in someone's thought.

Trying to reconcile
That dire devotion
Of needing to be sought.

But perhaps for some
It all ends well
By remaining out of reach.

Can it be overcome?
Only tide will tell
When it has nothing more to teach.
