Leak. {Poem}

The drain, it leaks 
I let it
I’m the land
Lapping up against the hills
Of my collapsing breasts
I watch as the tide lowers
Colder, colder
The warmth is gone 
I could turn the water back on
But I don’t
I let it run out 
Dry and alone
I’m left
In this life, too
Time evaporates
Forced to climb out  
Back into present tense
Grief wrapped in loneliness. ~Rebecca
