Day 244: lost looking

there are holes here where we used to stand
the sand is eroding to salt
we melt in the sun
crack in the cold
we are fragile and find ourselves too weak to hold on to even ourselves
during this storm
we lose everything
that means anything to us
including our dignity
the parts of our hearts we once hid beneath our skin
so much that used to be here is now gone
and we are all just waiting for something
however small it may be to return and remind us
who we were before and why we ever wanted anything so badly that we allowed ourself to get lost looking for it
