wish "you"...whole

A heart’s dry spell,
A spirit’s drought
No water in the well…
No drop from the spout

soul is empty
need to refill…
count to twenty…
heart sits still


wait for thunder..
wait for rain…
to swim, to wade…
to drown the pain…

gag and wait
and dehydrate
squeeze your fate…
release the hate…

breathe in and gasp
for needed air…
hands in a clasp
a single prayer…

then waves they call
it stops your fall…
abates your thirst
tears then burst…

you drink at last
you wash your past
you soak your soul.
And wish “you”… whole.
