Akin To Waters

Liquid emotions

drown me

like reflective pools

in their shallow depth.


Thoughts and fears

swim around

like unknown inhabitants

in my ocean life.


Moods roll in

and roll out

like predictable tides

on a lunar schedual.


My heart fills

and empties and fills and empties

like reseviours

in a drought.


Tears trickle

falling down my face

like raindrops

on a windowpane.


I am akin to waters.
