“All lakes die. ALL lakes die, eventually.”
The body of water you floated upon belly-up, in time, will give into the unnatural capillary action. After its remaining drops are soaked-up into the atmosphere, left behind will be mere remnants of its once capacity and great depth.
Ah, is this not true for all lake-like things or experiences? Once, so grand! So dependent and ever-giving! And over time, any given amount, it depletes - gone.
