she slid under the water – February 19

2.19.2017

she slid under

the water,

one last hit

bringing a blink

into which

the family bath

disappeared

 

along with the

smile and pain

and any semblance

within this life

that a friend

or mom

or dad or

whomever

could ever touch

again.

 

it’s what prayer

is for

that there will be

another

time and place

for the touchings

of love

to begin again.
