wading upstream

I wanted her to be

who she told me she was

had been

there in the beginning

now it seems

for such a little while

but like any prospector

finding a tiny nugget downstream

I was spending my time

in cold water

wading upstream

finding nothing

yet

not understanding

I was stuck

in a foolish dream

of riches to come
