The Pearl


When I find pause in gaps in long, dark days
The orb within my shell begins to dull
Its glow and glisten languishes in pain
My desp’rate hope corrodes and takes its toll
By sand I’m anchored, distant and alone
An iridescent sheen, my only sight
I wish to find a love and leave my throne
But shells around clamp closed, try as I might
In reckless grief I cry out for a wave,
To come and crush these godforsaken shells,
So love will peek its head out and be brave,
Enough to end this mad and lonely hell;
But endless ages pass, no sign appears;
My shell forever locks me in my tears.
