    //the rippled him//

    Shores are mere illusion, a surviving ventilator for terrestrials and death beds for water inhabitants. What about the inanimate objects? Leaving behind their residues in hopes of binding with something else, that may give a meaning to their flawed existence, perhaps.

    I saw a boy, no this isn't about him but I can't help from painting his illusion in my words like a routine. Just like the dewy-eyed shores, he too was sentimental over his own residuals. Such fate I deserved, his shadow was sketchy yet I felt complete from within.

    The granular sands aiding towards the harboring shell, hiding them from pilferers, who interested themselves in chintzy belongings and placing them on shelf as medals. The boy, he somehow rules out upright ways to find a place in my journal or is it myself still lamenting over his absence?
