I Saw Myself in the Water

from by Evan Lyle Jensen



Yes, You.

I Saw You Crying
Don’t think I’m fooled
Can’t feel your tongue?
The sand and the sun
miles and miles
No one.

Discover me this way
Follow your shadow
Do you know who I am?
A stranger to you
For so long you were so sure you knew
Yes. You.

It was the craziest thing
Not an ounce of energy to spare
And I ran so hard

Lone tree still breathing
It came with a pond
I pulled myself there

Split the cat-tails with my hands
The water was so calm
Disclosing a face in awe.

So strange I said to myself
Something I hadn’t seen in a long time
He smiled when I smiled.
