The Shells Along Her Ocean
Lisa Cronkhite

She made a mistake-
unintentionally killed herself.
It wasn't supposed to happened this time.
She accidentally slipped and fell-
cracking her heart open. She thought
it would release the pain, but
instead it backfired; shattered and now the pieces
infect her as she reflects on what she did.
She walks along the ocean of her fleshy tides,
now collecting the shards she mistakenly broke,
looks at them thinking-
they are now beautiful in a different way
feeling the fall may happen yet again
