Image of Short Circuit - Short Circuit #09
Like a waterfall
Flowing over the aged jagged rocks
It has formed over the years.
The rusty gutter succumbs,
The water gushes from this escape route.

I sit here in the quiet
Listening to the aquatic drama;
The stillness of the dark
Against the rush of water;
I embrace it.
But then the dog snores.
I listen for your breath.
Not out of concern
But to still feel we have a connection
Of some sort.
Desperation on my part.

I sit here in the quiet.
Happy in the darkness;
I know I can breathe
Without you.
