Clam

Alone with a clam,
Not far away from the shore,
I realized how confined I am.
And I ask myself,
How can someone so emotionally recluse like me
Be so vulnerable?
How can someone so dismissive be so fragile?

And just like that
I threw the clam away to the open water,
Saying goodbye to the pearl it holds,
Saying goodbye without saying it at all.
