The Thought of Hydration

Prompt 26: Write a water poem.

The Thought of Hydration

Like water,
do I require or desire you to
leave me spick-and-span,
replenish my soul,
Or recycle my youth?
Before asking consent
to build a bridge over trouble,
should I wait by the riverside
holding my own water?
Or should I, like water,
run, then ripple through the green letting everything flow---
leaving you to sit still to drown in your own tears?
Or like water, shall I let your heart freeze
for me to steady stream by?
Or like water, should I fall
deeply in a bucket for you to catch?
Or like water, should I spill over and allow sun to boil or spoil me?
Or like water, shall I forever naturally resource your living?
