A River of Love

Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive
 

The thoughts and sounds of you are endlessly seamless

My earthen banks collapsing against you the cutting river

Flowing slowly with tinkling sounds of ice cubes stirring bubbles

I cannot quit myself thinking of you even though ahead I see your falls

And as you flow by my shores I crumble and collapse into you without struggle

I know good and well rivers run but one way, away with forks that cut like knives

I can’t help myself frozen; I gaze at your sparkling skin, caught staring I cannot blink

The glimmerings of reflection of the sun on your watery skin also cause me to think

You’re flowing away; towards a new sunrise, not giving thought to what’s left behind

Even as part of me has drown deep inside of you, I still see you under tin foil sunny skies

These particles of me flowing downstream toward the lakes where your love will reside

Wishing I was that body of water that kisses your open mouth, empting into still waters

Do you know that changing your direction takes parts of me; leaving most of me behind?

Me my arms so strong, I can hold all of you, but not strong enough to change your mind

I stay here and fear I must watch your flowing spray fly into my face again tomorrow

Taking little parts of me, cutting my shores, not caring, crumbling endlessly, seamlessly

Like a river running away from a setting sky
