Laden Love

By Juliana Vaiuso

Ever heard of the old maiden 

That lies heart broken 

In the the summer sand

Strain one step 

And sink into the love 

You thought you had 

Like sinful serpents 

The sand wraps around her toes 

Burying her melancholy bliss 

Beneath a quilt of waves 

Until the salt in the seabed caresses her bones
