Ground Water

Sometime after
I sat in my car
For reasons beyond
Thought and memory

Ground water hides
The cavernous hauntings
That trickle
A hidden wanting

As though we live
Two lives
One in stunned light
The other distant time
Lost beneath

Later reason resounded
I didn't know why
I drank so deeply
Of my tears
As mood dissolved

I said
I felt empty
When truthfully
It was that
I was too full.
