Overtook with fascination,
I dipped a cautious foot into shallow water,
an adult-sized pool feigning its depth,
reflecting all of my desires as to entice me,
and met with stinging cold I recoiled,
face evolving into a grimace.
Thus I tore from my body a limb,
and swung it at the water in unbridled contempt,
satisfied in the disturbance of the image,
temporary as it may be,
calmly watching as the puzzle put itself back together,
the solution a haunting reminder,
but as of now I’ve forgotten what it was.
