Enigmatic Streams

Water scaldingly soothes

the soul, warmed and content.

I stand, praying

to remain,

in this safe isolation

where heat glides down flesh

instantly replaced with the next

comforting drop.

Cast-off remnants

wasted and ignored,

circle the drain

before being swallowed.

My greed inevitably

fails, always

the repeat loser

as languishing heat

transitions to

ice cold pain.

Paralyzing shivers shock

reality through my veins.

Time to face another day

of devoted inattention,

leaving me sadly satisfied

in hope’s faithful promise

of a new day reignited.
