Too close
Jun 28, 2015, 7:29a - Poetry

One lateral move
And I'm in it.
I can now get
From any emotion
To tears
in 5 seconds or less.

The sadness has come this close
That I can reach out
And dip my toe in it.

What started as an empty basin
Has rapidly swelled
From a distant puddle
To a pond the size of a lake

No matter where I go
I'm only just a step away
As the perimeter grows
With every failed day

Sadness becomes sorrow.
I'm on dry land
for now.
