Saturation: Melting Point
by Therese Elaine
More and more
I wake up
to find myself
until I've damn near dissolved;
there's only the silence to soak me up
Seeped into delicate
cracked composure fissures,
collected at the bottom of
...and I become
an expanse of ocean,
once contained inside
a heart that was too small
to keep me
it's easy to bleed out this way

That stanza and then the last line at the end are just so... perfect. Everything about this piece pulls in and together for me. I love it...

That second to last stanza is a gem, so complete it could stand alone. Wonderful poem, Therese!

Quite brilliant how you make me feel everything become completely liquid in this. I especially like this phrase - "eloquently disguised
empty spaces..." while the end line gives such vivid finality.

silence is ever ready to take one in as it's own. As for the empty spaces, watch your, step darling ;)

Every stanza has something to look into - trying to peer through the deep goblet of fine wine you are - but never seeing the bottom. This is a real gem, Therese. Thanks.
