Sometimes, Everything Is About Water
Sometimes, everything is about water
Its ability to suffocate--to drown
its darkness--the unknown
where all the possibilites of
the unseen monsters, hiding below, waiting
to feed upon me...
Oh the weight of it is crushing the breath of life from me
until I become the blackest bottom of the sea
Water is everything, everywhere
Then pooling, streaming, flowing, rising, rushing, gushing
I need it, desire it, I drink it down without fear, now
for I am water and I am intoxicated without it
Shall I sink or shall I sail upon this ocean of life and death
All life sails to death in the time of water.
The journey weighs heavy, but sure.
