In the crowd, I could shine. Illuminating with the energy of joined voices. It was only alone that I stuttered and stumbled.
Despite my worst efforts I was a mirage, a moon absorbing the light of the suns that surrounded me.
There is salt on my skin. Remnants of waves biting my shins, my thighs, my toes.
The saltwater is known, this ocean and these rocks are proven.
I see concrete proof of history in the shells between my feet.
There was deceit in vows and lies in the embrace.
Screams in their silence, appreciation in unspoken distance.
Walls begin to separate when words only create harsh realities.
