Sienna


She ran out to the woods
Chased adventure all the way down to the lake
Black like tar and anger and emotion and hatred
She jumped in
trepidation and cold and fire and that sound of stone cracking against stone that was really just the water
but what was in the lake was nothing previously mentioned
what was in the lake took her, and me, and our family
what was in the lake was not oxygen
what was in the lake was not sustenance
for her to breathe
to live
to swim to shore
what was in the lake took her
she did not stay
but we did
we stayed with the lake that was black with tar and anger and emotion and hatred and trepidation and cold and fire
and that sound of stone
disappeared
went with her
and left us silent and gone and forever in the lake
