Still Water

still water: water that is located in an enclosed lake without a strong current and/or unflowing water.



there you go with
your sad songs
sunlight’s heavy and
the night is long

always sleepwalking
but you can’t sleep
yours are demons
that you can’t beat
so you broke all the mirrors
then danced on the shards
with your bare feet
always in motion
but you feel like still water and
the darkness did prosper
