RIVER OF LOVE

 

This wind blows so turbulently

round this broken heart of mine

and though the pieces toss & turn

Ever, they will be thine ~

EVER, they will be thine ~

For the river that flows from it

has always passed through deep

 Loves raging passions kept it churning

 'ore the stones

way beneath ~

Lo, the bed upon which it runs

a foundation sure & strong

Stones having been laid

by the King of Love

all along ~

Each stone has it's story

amid my river running deep

   *Silently supporting my waters dancing feet*

~ and she dances

this river ~

Sometimes fast  ~ sometimes slow

But

 she dances to a rhythm

only the stones beneath do know

*and they sing as she dances*

flowing freely through each pass

Never once stopping, for the path has been cast

 ~ and she dances...this river ~

Sometimes fast ~ sometimes slow

this raging, passionate river..... that my Love for you bow'd

bowing from a wall...that so long, long ago

came crashing down   ~   a waterfall.....it sweetly flowed

From that wall built by pain

stones that I mislaid

now lying at the bottom, paving my river's way ~

But lo, my river slows.....

caught in the pass' way......

  *by a dam unknown to me*........

immovable.......it shall stay.

And stay it will

And move on I must

 a new pass will be made.......made 'round the dam's persistent crust

too high to pass over, too thick to breach

my once known path

will suddenly screech

at this dam in the river........of Love once so passionate & pure......

Screech to a halt......my river's path now unsure......

only knowing  the water must keep moving...for it's life is in the flow....and the stones that once paved it........sit now at the dam, no-where to go....

 gently leaving...... the stones of my Love.....behind ~

though the water..... ever present.............

will carry sediments in like kind.......

of a Love so furious......raging for it's hearts mainstay....

but the Dam simply stood....... stood immovable.......

 in my river of loves way......*
