A Drop of Soap

Defining an emotion

is like picking up a drop of soap

It’s there and brightly colored

it’s changing with the tide

ever so slightly

but still changing.

You reach for it

and try to hold,

to pick it up and try to put it somewhere,

but it slips through the cracks.

You pinch it and it spreads out

you grab it and it falls out.



you finally have it,

it isn’t soap anymore.

An emotion

A drop of soap

cannot be contained

and still be what it is.
