Water [Live. How?]

There's something about water that fascinates the mind,

Hypnotic in its passive dancing,

Wheeling in panicked turns to the tune of an inaudible waltz.


The way it ripples with each drop of rain in the cold,

Resonates with me,

As though the water itself is speaking to me,

Desperately wanting to be heard,

It's voice crying in every motion.


What is it saying?

Stop! Stop!

I don't know

Please! Stop!

It's too quiet

You're not listening!

All I know is how I feel when I see the way it glistens in the moonlight,

The way it reflects the beauty of a cityscape as dusk falls,

When the day is done water's true beauty is found,

It sparkles below me, 

Pinpricks of street lights streak across its surface, 

They seem to spread ferociously as my eyes are filled with tears, 

Pinpricks becoming blazing stars.


The air whispers to me, 

telling me what I need to hear.

Exactly what I need.


Water is pure beauty,

Eternally entrancing my closed-off mind,

Drawing me in,

Because sometimes

Water is more than beauty,

It becomes a perfect friend,

With no capacity to judge,

No way to hate,

Only to fill.

An empty





It becomes





My legs fold beneath me,

my body goes limp,

I fall.
