Your white spiny conch was a treasure
we found, one smoothed with time.
I saw you whispering in its curve
and hide it away with a secret smile,
"Someday you will know."

Years, I listen to the shell and I hear
an 'I love you' said for the first time.

Love like that shell are fragile.
I remember us, how we were and then
let it all fall. They break and I crush
them under heel, furthering the shatter.
You can't fix that darling.
