Watermark

Dreams like shadows upon the 
water
Water holds secrets beneath 
it's murky flesh
Our marriage held an 
unspoken lie

You were a saviour
Yet temperamental as the wind
I could not hold you down 

It was the watering hole that 
we met
Water weathers the rocks
Life weathered our love

The pond you built was not 
enough
For my cold feet
I felt you trying
Yet I felt you drifting
Gently as a thistle on the wind

You left me here. 
It is true what they say
You left a watermark upon my 
heart.
