Ponds" 8/17/18 10:45pm
Salty water has never fallen so
creating puddles into ponds.
Her smile breaks to a frown,
"Where'd it go wrong?"
He spoke the words she didn't think he'd speak so soon.
Time stops, her breath drops, her heart flatlines.
Those glorious ponds turn into an ocean.
No more land to walk on,
only to swim in.
How salty this water is,
is shriveling her inside and out.
Oh, how much she can't wait to bring that lovely smile she once
the one she didn't need to show in a while.
She dives in head first,
hits a rock and knocks out unconscious.
T'was that special thing we have nowadays.
Something people nowadays "can't live without".
No, not a beating heart,
No, not a living person,
But a charged cellphone.
It makes sense, y'know?
Cuz of the distance?
And then my situation?
It makes sense.
I'd understand...Kind of.
The clouds move carelessly,
letting the Sun breathe upon us once again.
The ocean is evaporating immensely,
ponds are decreasing,
puddles are becoming wetless.
But the weather's forecast said,
"We'll be back later tonight
To keep you updated
over the weather that'll be back as well"
