Drink More Water

She sends me a message
Every morning wishing me a good day
A selfless act that shows the consistency
Of new love

Her concern for my well being
Is only exceeded by her thoughtfulness
“Drink more water” she utters
As though I am on the verge
Of being consumed and destroyed
By this desolate desert
My provisional home

I know that she really wants to say
Please take care of yourself and
Don’t let that place change you
Stay hydrated and uncontaminated
Keep your youthful spirit
Return to me the same or better
Than when you left

I message her back-

“I’ll drink more water”
