    I threw a rock in the pool
    that reflected us at one time

    I rode the ripple to see
    if we still existed

    somewhere
    some...how
    some....WAY

    some days I
    sit with my feet
    in the same pool
    wondering

    why the reflections ran
    away...................

    why I surf to
    seek what I can not
    find any
    more

    us

    I certainly ...

    felt the melancholy mood this piece

    This is a very nice touch of YOU!

    verb

    sometimes you gotta get out the pool, dry off and move on. No matter how much you wanna stay.

    funny thing about water
    it evaporates
    and ripples become smooth
    then fierce
    ever changing with the tide...
    perhaps us, we, you and me
    evaporated when the sun
    shone to hot
    and we became humidity
    suffocating
    the love that would not be
    though i'm not far
    the us changed to me
    to you
    to the pull of the moon
    on opposite sides
    i will always love you.
