Salt

.

Expelled from solution

hardened by the loneliness

I saw you finally, uncloaked

.

Revealing yourself in pure white diamonds

desperate to attract

waiting to be tamed by water again

.

Become brine, sweat and tears again

Abandoning the diamond castle

for a life in anonymous ubiquity

.
