Deep Water



Deep Water
By
Lisa A.Williams


I know
the way she feels-
Immersed
 in the turbulent tide,
torn between the freeing
of the waves
and the steady
earth
Standing still,
    eyes fixed on the horizon,
the moon
casts heaven’s reflection
skimming the deep.
How the lunar light
pulls to call her home
but she is earthbound,
turns away
from her reflection.
 Blanketed in
darkness,
she wears the shroud
of “happy”
and returns
to“life”
 drowning
in all its illusions.
