i am an ocean i am a stream i am big and small simultaneously you see me as your reflection. i see me; a ghost, a mirror.
i’m always moving, not always forward sometimes sideways sometimes downward sometimes it’s beautiful sometimes not. im glad im made of water, no one sees my tears. im sad im made of water, no one tries to.
i pretend some nights when i lie on my back that the stars are my friends, not just reflections. i pretend sometimes that the sunset is going to burn me up. i pretend sometimes…
i’m a memory on tortured film, dressed up pretty and put on a wall. i’m a backdrop to a thousand love stories. i’m a poem on a page that i will never read.
i am a dead canvas for stars and sun and trees and you to play with.
i am an ocean i am a stream bitter towards all who’ve never loved me. i’ll fill your mouths and hold you down, dream we’re friends before you drown.
