Broken

24 Dec

I once was an ocean of charity.
Now, I am but an arid sea.
You came from miles to get your feet wet.
Look down and there’s sand up to your knees.
You come, I gave.
You came and you took.
Now, I am hollow.
Not even a shallow brook.
Can I get a drop of your sweat?
So I can remember how it feels to be wet.
