We crossed the desert

Sailed the seas

Rode the constellations

Cruised the milky way

Why was it the minute pond that felled us?

Why was it that splash of water,

that stretch of stillness created by our mistakes

that drowned us?


Who would have thought,

that something no bigger than our bath tub

had so much depth that we would never be able to get past it?

We drowned in that puddle

I came up for air and you were a stranger

Who would have thought?


Like princesses and peas

Like pins in haystacks

Like the flowers you used to send me

Like the words ‘ I love you’

It’s always in the little things…
