I wallow in my sadness
As it pools up
It has not swallowed me
Who floats above its surface
This surface
Distorts my truth
Changing my reflection
This pool
Becomes more real
Than my self-esteem
My pride revealed so shallow
My worth but an empty echo
Complements won’t soak through
This water-resistant heart
I beg of you
Please get out and towel off
For I have much to do
