You hide them well

In the deep oceans of your heart

Like buried treasure


Sometimes they rise up

Fighting to escape

You battle right back

And drown them again

But in rare moments

The locks give way

The storms overwhelm

The pearls rise up

In all their glory

Laden heavy with pain

One at a time

Like the sigh of the shell

Pried open

Brilliant pearls

Flow slowly gently

As if wanting to wash away

The scars

Each one brighter than the one before


You wear them well

So Precious

Go on

Wear them proudly

Wear them unafraid

I stand guard
