Salt

The salty splashes

Corrode.

Eat away,

So the surface

Blisters and flakes,

It cracks,

Seeps deeply

Into the fissures.

It stings with a

Sharp, shrill shock of pain,

as the depths

of viscous waters,

With their secrets –

Ebb and flow over

Broken skin.

Dark waters

Soaking deeply into the wounds,

The pain is accepted, as with

it comes the promise

of healing, renewal

and of infections defeated.
