She lives in my heart
but I live nowhere
lost to love
in eyes of ocean blue
crystal coral fears
caressing weeping wounds
I can feel her lips
like summer’s jagged sunrise 
shards of salted skies
stinging swollen memories
beaded flesh evaporating
my lust for life
She loved me
until I forgot how to love
to hold her heartbeat
cuddle the complacent night
where I now wander
searching for why
