The only gage I know

My body is water!
My eyes are half filled,
With an ocean.
It rages and it fights,
With my skull.
It sinks through a plug hole.
It spirals down my spine.
The icy shadows of my spirit,
Are drenched,
And cleansed.
It spreads to my feet.
It settles.
My fingers tingle,
As a chill wind,
Brushes past them.
This is how i know,
I am alive.
Discomfort is the only real measure.
The only gage I know.
