Thirst

In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Ripped from the Headlines!.”

My thirst overwhelms
I crawl to a well
But the water is dried
I long for a drop of
Moisture on my tongue
But there is none
If water is life
Then we are dead

  1. Owkay! This is compelling….sinister! ‘If water is life, then we’re dead’ and I ask….Isn’t water life?! Dehydration’s bad thing and can infact kill. Plus, the major constituent of a human matter’s water. Hehehe

    This is nice Vonita…thought-provoking! Cool! πŸ˜ŽπŸ˜„
