Where the ripple goes….

The Ripple

Sitting on the edge

 

A reflection

is staring

Blankly

Back

 

Sitting on the edge

 

Peer

Longingly

Into the water

Would you swallow me?

Drag me under

Suffocate me

 

Sitting on the edge

 

Reach down

Drag

One finger

Quietly

Over the water

Create

The ripple

 

Sitting on the edge

 

Watch

It multiplies

Widens

Then fades away

 

Sit on the edge

 

And wonder

Why

We will never know

Where the ripple goes

The wall…

Wall

Some days there is this huge brick wall

Reinforced

Impenetrable

I want to scream

So loud

Make it crack

And I do

Silently

Inside my head

Nothing affects it

I stare blankly

Unsure

Should I give up?

Cry?

Get angry?

None of the above?

I sit down

And try

So very hard

To see it

Differently

I stare at it

‘why won’t you let me in?’ I ask it

The question tumbles out

‘Isn’t this a waste of your time?’ it answers back

‘I don’t know,’ my honesty bounces back from it, echoing loudly

‘what do you know?’

‘Well…I know that I really enjoyed writing’

‘And?’

‘and all of the creativity…’

‘and?’

‘And you’ve taken it all away from me..’

‘Me?’

‘You are the wall’

‘Am I?’

‘Aren’t you?’

‘What are you questioning?’

‘Well, I guess I’m questioning if you are the wall’

‘and’

‘and if you are the one who put it there’

‘and’

‘and……if maybe’

‘yes..’

‘’well, maybe’

‘go on’

‘Are you really a wall?’

But there is no response

I look at it

A tear silently rolls down my cheek

Etched in the wall

Three tiny words

“I was here”
