Status: Finished  |  Genre: Poetry  |  House: Booksie Classic

it is a poetic description of water


In the abstract called liveliness,

Other recipes mere lifeless,

You solely the living soul

That turned dead abstract into living existence


You come, and with life

You go; but death you leave behind

Without you, all dried, dead like mercury

With you, it is earth


You are two hydrogen, one oxygen

That bond with shared pair

Administered by covalent priest

Two hydrogen, one oxygen of Joule, and life


The oxygen of lone electrons of pairs

Flattered, slipped and seeped

Seeped into heart, bathed with life

Key to life, the lone pairs





Rider of horse 7 of pH


On horse 7 rides through my throat

Into the rails of my veins

Carries the mail of info

To duty centers though.
