There are many things that don't stop when you ask them to, and tears are one of them. They flood the streets, leaving me stranded with my emotions and too much time to think about them. I'll watch them carry away what I took for granted as stable, nothing left behind or visible. Sound the alarm, get to high ground-- there's no guarantee when the waters will calm again.
I hope you enjoyed this piece! I know I said I’d try to have some longer poems in the works but I struggle to finish them…I’d love to hear your thoughts on that and possible prompts/challenges/inspiration in the comments. Stay safe and healthy out there!
