today the sum of things slowly dissolves as I, in sunshades, sit on a shore not functioning up to par I have lost the spark the ocean waves crash against my outstretched feet touching my toes I feel myself sink into the golden sand until I am no longer visible the words would not come for me to shout to be rescued the seashells are broken like my faith the sharks have eaten my dignity still they say not to look back or criticise myself the sea spits back the dreams only in chewed up pieces too shattered to make up a whole again I put them in a treasure box and close it not knowing the meaning of anything this silence surrounding me this blue of the air
