If My Sand Castle Drowns,
Can I Live With You…?

spoken with the lisp of a child…
one of those universal truths
we sometimes miss...

lost in emptiness,
building ephemeral dreams
without concrete foundations

drifting unfettered,
but unsecured—
and yes, there is a difference…

a life alone is a life
a life entwined is a miracle

to me

I speak for myself
and not for you

for no one has the right
to dictate your reality

but if my castle wanders
too close to the sea

and dissolves into
bits of shapeless sand…

will you extend to
me a lifeline?

will you hold out
your hand?
