I liked this. I thought about that, and if my life was the water in the pitcher, I guess I would swallow it all as fast as I could so nobody can see it... if it were the pitcher itself? Put it in a box and bury it, I suppose. I think I must be here waiting on the next one. This one? It's become like some rest stop along the way.
I think this was creative... If I were easily inspired, I would say inspirational even... it's not a word I use often, but I can see where it would apply. Nice.
I'll be honest, I didn't like it. BUT, before you ignore me, let me clarify.
I liked the meaning, I liked what you were trying to say, I just didn't like how you said it.
It's too clear, you can't just come out and say things in poetry! Well, sometimes you can pull it off, but mostly, it's better to use metaphor, allegory, or another fitting literary tool. Hide the meaning/idea/emotion/message in something else.
So, maybe try again with this piece, and express the idea with less words, more images, more emotions, more subtlety.
