Reflective Agony

Shining metal

Open on the lake

Blistering heat

Reflective sheen

Swim with caution

Burning with light

Pain intensifies

Over water’s edge

Combine the hurt

From terror

And flight

Find the reflection

Not found at night

Where continuous agony

Finds the fight

The irritation

Covers every pore

Seeing the sensation

A sting in the eyes

Creates a tortuous

Blinding sight
