I am Water

Written by: Divine Friday Idiong

Now my words fall
On your ears
Like water on
The back of a duck.

You swim in doubt
And distrust.

Whereas you have
Become the essence
Of my existence.

I am water all over
And that is the 
Plain truth.

Yesterday, I returned
Home from work
To have you
Sniffing at me
In search of a 
Stranger’s perfume.
