you open your eyes and see a vision
but it looks so real and touchable
so you reach out and find nothing
the vision ripples like water
you can see it and feel its presence
you grab it and it falls through your fingers
like the warm sand you’re kneeling on
so you close your eyes and open them again
thinking it would be gone but it’s not
you realize its your reflection in the water
but for some reason
it’s not your face staring back
