reflections in the water

May 22, 2016


i exhale and drop the cigarette

down into the river quick

where its death sounds like

a trodden leaf and i listen,

the water soothing and soft

flowing beneath the bridge

i find myself leaning on


through the darkness, reflections

ripple upon the surface of the water,

whispering memories of the light


i breathe in and admire


but the mass that moves is black

spawning images of failure and

faded dreams i forgot i lost to the

void as it flows beneath the bridge

i find myself leaning on


i see my life below me

-out of reach and leaving fast-


on the bridge, i stand-

wondering why i see all this pain

in water


so i turn around and face

where the water goes

and know now i must follow

to the end where it meets

the great mass of it all

where i can truly be free
