Change is in the water

Strands of change that tug
On baited hooks of fear
Stretching taut skins of surety
Resilient and tense

Anxious ripples disturbing familiar tides
The comfortable ins and outs of life
Unsettled in the murky waters
Unseen and unheard there before
With no reflections of respite

Not one thing seems the same,
And you think she hates you ,
But it’s your hate that is reflected in the only stillness here,
Her eyes.

Only time relaxes transitional strands
From your flesh
The hooks no longer pulling, but anchoring 
Lapsing hours bring comfort now
Reinforced by realisation:

Wherever you are
You can save yourself
You, your sole steadfast companion
That needs no reflection to breath
And  no direction to swim
