2014 Day 20 – Lazarus Jewel Box

Teardrop earrings
Drip crystal grief.
Heart on a chain
Pulses, bloody.
Rings vein pale fingers.
Bracelets wrap wrists
Like bandages.
Dead memories
Resurrected.

 

Note: the prompt was to write a poem inspired by one or more of the many strange names for seashells. The one that took my fancy was Lazarus Jewel Box.
