In Your Memory (day 99)

I’ll crash on the shore

in your memory when I’m weak,

find mysteries in seashells

that shouldn’t have any.


You let seagulls loose

above your halo,

a curse in flight until

flying’s unknown.


I wish I dredged up

no scenes behind your skin,

just a sad pair of eyes

you don’t know yet.


What if I just

want to tell you,

you know how to


just where it hurts.


What if I just

want to tell you,

you have an uncanny

resemblance to loneliness.
