Crocodile Cries

I hear your desperate cries
through the arms splashing
in the lake.

Crocodile skin
breaks against the surface,
you scream louder in panic.

Alarmed, I take a step back
and start to charge
for a dive into the waters.

I am about to save you. I almost leapt.

Before I reach the edge of land,
I remember,
the crocodile skin
belongs to your lower half,
and so I  halt, turn my back
abandoning you and your crocodile cries.
