Inspired by Jason deCaires Taylor’s Underwater Sculpture
Soon enough the divers will come
they will stare with sea-coloured eyes
at the lost community,
buried under the sea,
coral blurring the features of faces
that were once loved.
If I ever go there I will search
until I find a face that resembles yours
and I will run my hand over the coral of the lips
and caress the seaweed hair
and whisper in its ear
“you have been loved once,
and you will be again”.
