Poem: Waiting for the Dam to Break

Seconds pass between breaths
When it seems frozen in eyes
Reflecting like mirrors back
At me showing me all my lies
That are never spoken read
On silent lips that whisper
Motionlessly like a murder
Of crows waiting for the death
The creature doesn’t know
Is coming but the universe knows
In those tears that fall freely
Watery judgment seeking out
To drown me in the guilt
Slowly filling up inside of me
Both watching and waiting
For the damn to finally break
To finally wash this all away
