another entry into the #whatpainsyouproject –
a poem for an anonymous reader and their pain…

‘somewhere in that well, love’

just beyond your grasp
a reflection shimmers
snared only by the
fancy of the sun
this, futile as it is fleeting
still temptation drives you

into placid darkness
dip your hand
cup that for which
you have searched
suffer no fools as from
slick fingers your frown leaks

drop by lingering drop.
