Poetry is just the evidence of life. If your life is burning well, poetry is just the ash. Leonard Cohen

Like Water

photo by lolamouse 8/12
You run like water
down the path of least resistance
to my lowest point
honing in
on the nadir of my insecurities
and doubts
Given enough time
even a trickle 
wears down granite
A trifle
becomes malignant
insistent and insidious
turning solid mass
I believe it is time
to dam you
 to damn you.

Excellent. I 'ran' right down the path of this poem with you & loved that strong 'damning' ending!
