This above all: to thine own self be true,
And it must follow, as the night the day,
Thou canst not then be false to any man.
Farewell, my blessing season this in thee
~Polonius, Hamlet Act 1, scene 3, 78–81

The Silence—of the World—
leaves a hush—among life
But for the—drip, drip—
of my bathroom faucet.

I guess I forgot—to turn
Tight the tap—
Drip, drip—says the Water
To a Lifeless room,
While the Fire on the Streets—
Burns itself out.

My hands Reach out
To shut—the Water off
It Slips past my Fingers.
I am Spirited Away.

Oh well—I think—
The—drip—dripof the Water
Will keep—drip, dripping—
Until it Has nothing Else—
To drip.

The author's comments:
Just a poem I had to write for my English class so I copied Emily Dickinson's style. I'm not entirely sure how it all happened, but after thinking about life in an eerie and cold way, this is the final product.
