I know your view of the world
has changed since you were
thrown out of the shallow
waters, maybe there’s not
much life left within you, but I talk
to you when I feel I can no longer
carry on with life.

I make up stories of the little
creatures who made a home
out of you, and I wonder how
warm was the flow that passes
through you and how did the sun
look like from under the
spontaneous surface.

How long have hove you lived
before you became my lucky
charm?

    I am so ECSTATIC to see you writing everyday for National Poetry Month! And I must admit, this particular piece made me a little emotional this morning. There's something so loving and tender, and it feels slightly different than your usual pieces that are formatted in the center, etc. I don't know all the ways how and why this is my favorite, but it is. I definitely think this could be interpreted in many ways, but for me, I personally connected to it with grieving someone right now. Someone who was a part of EVERYTHING I did. And I carry his memory around - in photos, in stuffed animals, in literally anything I can find reminding me of him... and that last part about them being your lucky charm got to me, resonated with me. I also could see the poem as directed toward more of a presence, not a specific person, or vice versa, someone who is not with you in all the ways they used to be, yet they still give and are there when you need them. And they kind of transcend life and death, if that makes sense.

    Really loved this, as with all of your poetry. This just hit my heart even more <3

      I’m really sorry to hear about you grieving that someone, I hope this helped a little <3

      This was inspired by a prompt “a poems about something on your desk”, which I have a broken dead coral my mom found on a beach and gave to me. I used to carry it in my pencil case when I went for tests. Although it became some sort of lucky charm for me, it really makes me sad to know coral reefs are being destroyed and/or are dead. This entire scenario inspired this, and I think you got the emotions :)

      Thank you thank you for this wonderful comment!!
