shucking my soul

I shuck my soul
to find the love
you leave behind.
To find the pearls
that shimmer like
the moon when its
drinking the last
of the sun's rays.

Each word you speak
engraved as nacre
inside this gray
mollusk that I
call my heart.  And
while my fingers
may bleed, bleed
may they in the
search of of each
pearl you leave behind.
