    she shed a tear for me
    said to cleanse me...but i think
    she's rinsing herself of me...
    down the drain of what was /had been/
    and will no longer be...I tried
    to catch myself before I flowed into
    the sea of past memories
    then remembered i couldn't swim...
    so I left I - waded to the edge of
    the banks of my being and skipped
    a rock to wave goodbye to myself

    painfully I spread out words to
    embrace her

    maybe hold her into
    another chapter of my life
    but some stories are never meant to
    be finished...

    ...I'm finished...
