Kitchen Sink

Flinching at water drops and hurling sighs to the wind outside the door

Tired eyes glazed over in a cloudy daze

Tears ran out and dried up before the spring showers ever arrived

And now she’s empty

You called once to check in and once for a favor

She couldn’t answer because of the fury

The fury fueled by the dripping faucet in the kitchen

That god awful sound of water drops falling from metal to ceramic

She was an all-in type of person, so when it rained it stormed

But this wasn’t even a drizzle

The drops wore a path, tiny but treacherous, and they yellowed the sink

Stained it just like the little things that had always gotten to her

The drops were problems screaming in perfect time, reminding her again and again

That she had no real power
