Knee Deep

Tears soften solid ground

turning dirt into soil

life blossoms from pain


earth, hear me hurt

as I fall

and break into you


knee deep

in a creek

where I weep


no peep

low peak

I don't peek


hope bleak

slurred speech

I don't preach


no reach

soul leaves

with cold breeze


cold breeze

torn jeans

and no sleeves


knee deep

in a creek

where I weep
