An urchin under the sun
on a bare rock, falls apart:
I would never eat a tender heart
(once so strategically protected)
and never dream of incursion
into the fortress of livid bone,
inked and armed, ready!
Bleeding black teardrop at the tip,
of each (s)word, Unpronounced.

I pause in stillness.
No cry of pain. No “save me “
written on the sand, with spines.
Still, you hurt, slow agony.

I would never break the shell
where the pulp shivers;
divert my gaze and watch the tide
and the glittering sand instead…

How I wish I had never taken a walk today,
and almost found myself a part
of you, falling apart.

Prickly in all his vulnerability--a paradox--so absolutely unhuggable, the only compassion we are allowed towards such is inclusion by mental osmosis and/or by sharing it in writing. I'm grateful for the "almost" in your last stanza. Also, I like your word plays with "word" and "sword", "inklusion", and "part"/ "apart". --Charlie

Excellent use of metaphor!!

What a gem this is, Axilea. Perfect in every facet.

Encore! ENCORE!!

The words express your reaction to the agony or pain of something so different and yet a part of life. What a lovely poem to express the connection we as humans should have with nature! Sandi

there exists in your work Axilea a need to surrender to the pain of this displaced creature -- compassion for its plight brought you to the brink of despair -- unable and unwilling to gaze away from the urchin's demise -- there is tenderness here that eluded me the first time I read it -- now the pain and suffering have surfaced and the compassion has swelled -- I admire the way you captured this event with a perspective often overlooked by casual observation -- I bid you love and peace my dear friend -- Jon Michael

excellent analogy, Alexia ... painfully realistic ...

It is fascinating how nature can all too often parallel and metaphorize reality and our own day to day lifes. Well done Axilea, enjoyed.

The world is a cruel place despite our best intentions. Still nature has its plan unless we intervene, usually a bad idea. I liked this one a lot. Patrick

Axilea, "Inklusion", illusion? A look into aspects of love and the pain it can bring to both parties. Enjoyed!

Excellent! Dramatic. Hurtful. Very hurtful. I cringed. Wonderful writing. Sad subject. Cringed, I'm telling you.
