The Water is A-Rising

The water is a-rising

Swirls and pools abound

Rain saws through the sky

Back and forth, up and down

 

The sadness is swelling

In clouds of murky gray

My fear is dripping faster

From rainy night to gloomy day

 

People are out fake smiling

Or not looking to care

What is the meaning of this,

This torrent so unaware?

 

Food and drink don’t soothe

Distractions are hollow-bound

The water reaches its pinnacle

And I’m fighting not to drown
