Waterfall ocean pic for Breach.jpeg

When who you are
comes on shockingly
fast, as if
the side of you
was punctured with a nail, and
the sheer weight of your unlived life, the grand
reservoir that is you, explodes out in a torrent
when you realise
you were always the rushing river,
this splendid waterfall,
that you were never a stagnant pool,
never meant to be dammed

will you realise
that which you painstakingly avoided
released you in the end?

Now that you are the ocean, 
will you know you were also the nail?
