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…
