Shipwreck

Pearls stab through neglected piercings
Rubies rise to meet the ocean's tongue
Resounding melodies in the mermaid's song

Ferocious silence licking pearls
Slick with salty indifference
Venom dripping into the parted mouth

With lips like the Red Sea
And the air of a sailor
A poison kiss swallows the tide

Distance to the rocking boat
With the eye of the storm set
On a love never had
