Along The River Lines


Quote of the day:
Everybody's damaged by something.
-Emma Donoghue



A swift glance.
Along the river lines.
Chopping trees to make logs.
The door to our hearts need new signs.

To withstand the forces of life.
And if tears fill oceans or a flume.
A crucifixion along the river lines.
Like laughter in an empty room.

A slight touch.
Above the face lines. 
Caressing skin to evoke emotions.
Like love that redefines.



Peace.Love.Light

Current Listen: Iyeoka -Simply Falling

  2. A touch of sadness here. Poignant - no doubt. Encouragement with the term "redefines". Thank you!

  12. Enchanting verse with an interesting mis of emotion. Cruxifiction of course makes one think of the worst pain possible, but it also tells a story of love that redefines too. I do think that the doors of our hearts need new signs, often.

  28. hmm..interesting poem about love and pain along the river lines...I guess we need to read the signs before we open those doors to the heart as you never know what you will find...maybe, a yield sign would work best...

    love, peace and light is what I always say...interesting indeed here as I pick up a vibe or two..just sayin'
