Water

Experiences 

Droplets falling from the sky 

Come together on the ground 

Till we know not where from 

Shaping the inside 

Only revealing reasons why 

To another ocean 

Seated on a couch 

Oceans separated by land 

Try earnestly to link with their kind 

Advised to have ill feelings towards apathy

We’re not islands 

We’re oceans 

Filtering into rivers 

Flowing 

************* 

Leave me be

And lend your thoughts to all the ways 

Water is itself 

Maybe i’m the sea 

Salted to a fault 

I might be a swamp 

Revelling in just being 

Holding my form 

Drawing you into quicksand 

With my uniqueness 

Maybe you’re a river 

Flowing with no regard for whosoever’s path you cross 

Sweeping feelings away 

Sweeping the important and the mundane  

Maybe you all are rivers 

Maybe this is all a dream and i’ll wake up 

Maybe my life will be shortlived 

Like a puddle in the sun 

Let me enjoy the pleasure of being

Of existing 

Of what use will pining be 

To a puddle in its short life 

Pining to be one with the sea 

None.
