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
would have 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’,
Its always in the little things…
