Still Water

Still Water

A Poem by Brandon Wilson
"

A Poem about appearances and turmoil in ones own life that we hide under a charade

"

 


 


Still Water

 

It’s been said, still water runs deep

Smooth surface, strong currents below

I wear this mask of calm and peace

Under repose a troubled flow

 

Don’t wade in deep, stay clear the pull

Keep your feet firm on solid ground

This water is seldom peaceful

The currents here are swift, don’t drown

 

If you find yourself out to sea

I’m sorry for what I have done

This current is from my own past

Stay to the shore where feet may run

Good job with this one!
As usual your explorations and experiments have created something beautiful!
Very skillful use of rhyme scheme.
I liked how in the last verse you break up the scheme that has been running through the rest of the work, it added variety and was a very good subtle technique to keep things from being too predictable.
I really can't find anything bad about this poem.
Keep it up!

That was awesome! The effect of reading it with Tonight We Dine In Hell by Tyler Bates in the background was amazingly perfect!
