flood waters

by mistersoto

dawn light
breaking
his fortitude and restraint
if only life might be lived
minute by the minute
and buried deeper
beneath layers, beyond obstacles
known and unknown
a secret harboured
the desire to
never allow even a second to pass
unattended
and what if he cut
this raft of his emotions loose
and head out screaming across
the rising flood waters
what then?
