Heart Full Of Stones

Sometimes I think this heart
is so full of stones
you can hear it grinding
every time it beats.

It bleeds powders:
crushed quartz,
flaked granite,
shattered shale
And liquid amethyst.

And here you are,
the blue tide striding
in and out unhindered.
Wearing away the stones.
Washing away the dust.
