My Pearl and the Dying Girl by Samuel Nicolaci

We sailed our bodies across water,
Splitting calm and crashing into shoreline,
She said, “I could live this way forever, baking salt and sea into my scales.”
She said, “I could live here all my life, because life is light and light around here is infinite.”
My pearl and the dying girl,
My pearl and the dying girl,
In the afternoon we built castles over bonfires tourists left behind,
Lost embers warm the sand and morph the shells to glass,
She said, “You can look right through me now.”
My pearl and the dying girl,
My pearl and the dying girl,
Lost in a forest of blossom stars hanging from the sky,
She said, “I can’t leave and end up nowhere”,
Then she walked into the tide.
She said, “I could live here all my life, because life is night and night around here is infinite.”
My pearl and the dying girl,
My pearl and the dying girl,
Lone pearl lost inside my hand,
She took it from me and pulled my feet off from the sand,
Mellow welcome as we sink into the sea,
My cheeks restless turn to rest and leave behind,
My last human urge to breathe,
My pearl and the dying girl,
My pearl and the dying girl,
She moves a graceful swan aquatic deeper past the shore,
Her hair communicates with weird fish around her aura,
Spinning endlessly,
In empty pirouettes of water,
My pearl and the dying girl,
My pearl and the dying girl,
