    Impurity

    We standing together
    The lake’s crystal clear waters trap the infinite sky,
    A pool of clarity.
    Transparent

    Birds sing to the dawn, flowers bloom, sunlight dances.

    One jumps in
    The water turns murky and swamped,
    A bog of ambiguity.
    Obscured

    The sky darkens
    The land seeps
    The water thickens
    The boundaries between all blur.

    The birds become silent, flowers wilt, the sun sets hiding.

    A snake writhes upon itself and becomes knotted
    Choking it’s own breath from its lungs.
    Alligators patrol the surface
    Circling upon the skin of the water
    Trapping the body below.

    He yells for his other
    “Come back”
    Fear stricken, frozen,
    His breathe descends to the deep.
    She yells to her other
    “How can I?”
    Fear stricken, frozen,
    Her last breath ascends to the surface.
