I am at a deep well of loss

peering over the circular brick wall
that holds something
you can’t stop staring at

listening to the echo the water droplets make
as they let go

and you hold on


  1. Background:
    I wrote this about a friend who has struggled for years to look to Christ, due to all the loss and sadness he's experianced in his life. He has been stuck at this "well" for years...and is finally letting God's grace pull him away.

    Daniel, an ellipses could mean about a hundred million different things. Should I just guess? ;)

  2. exactly. when I do that, it's like a "I wish we could just spend a day at a coffee shop talking about this, but since we can't: ..." kind of expression.
