Bone

by dopio

countless tides flooded shores
then abandoned them
leaving grains and brine to dry
from astral bodies and ash trays
concave became convex
hair gave way to skin
ruts were carved
where tears had run
and smiles had pinched cheeks
the heart had hardened but for a small soft core
a concentrated heart of hearts
warming all that had worn down cold

the lungs inhale air that was once within
countless others
and no longer fear
where it has been

(In blind rating/commenting mode) I can appreciate the thought here, a pretty passionate write, and the use of language is really groovy. -- j.
