    Bouncing of the top each wave
    Reflects the pain your memory saved
    Glistening off the rippling surface
    The tension mimmicing your hate

    Step your feet across the ground
    Walk towards the fateful sound
    Silken tar your drowning inlet
    Look at what your soul has found

    Haunting hollow water black
    Feel the tides pulling you back
    Tempting you with their lulling rhythym
    Gravity finds the things you lack...

    Stare ahead at what will be
    Breathe the space that sets you free
    Fall into your comforting grace
    As the tension smacks your face

    Pray into the depths you sink
    All the pain thats left you hollow
    Open up and take your drink
    Feeding currents that you've followed

    Alas reality sets in
    This space, this void you've tried to fill
    Deceptively the waves have sinned
    Tricked you into jumping still

    Everything you've ever known
    Adrift among the ebb and flow
    Scattered about for all to see
    Exposed by doubt in the shallow sea...

    As always, I like it very much!:smile: :smile: You are so talented at expressing yourself, and your expressions often express our feelings also.

    much love,
