It’s a little complicated (a poem)

Inspired by Future Man; the first line of part 3 comes from the name of an old-age home.

We are the past
captured in a moment

we’re endlessly trying to escape

The things we’ve left behind
will not be there when we get back

What keeps us returning to that well?

My name is a tether     unbreakable     inflexible
a reminder of something captured

in a moment I carry with me

however hard I try to leave it behind
before the well runs dry

The cliffs I peer over are hidden
but the drop still scares me to death

Which ocean are you?
