Poetry (Day 12): Digging

 

Digging

I’m trying to get to the bottom
of why I love her,
trying to find
the one big thing

that explains it all.

But the little things keep
tumbling down
and obscuring my view.

The way she laughs.
The way she smiles.
The way she includes me
with a look.

I’m trying to get to the bottom
of why I love her,
but it’s like digging a hole
in water.
