Poem: Lost


Quote of the day:
Your pain is the breaking of the shell that encloses your understanding. 
-Khalil Gibran


image: DeviantArt 


If life freezes over.
Like icicles in an abandoned cave.
A heart stained with darkness is still a heart.
Like a road freshly tarred.

If clouds weep forever.
Like toddlers on the first day of school.
A conscience with light passing through.
Like a tree penetrated by sunshine.

If love is a lever.
Like a rigid operated part in a factory.
A mind devoid of emotions is unstable.
Like a faulty traffic light.



Peace.Love.Light

  10. Excellent, especially this one:

    'If clouds weep forever.
    Like toddlers on the first day of school.
    A conscience with light passing through.
    Like a tree penetrated by sunshine.

  26. Each stanza is like a little koan to consider.
    The heart is always a heart no matter how much tar
    covers it - and I am glad love is not as impersonal
    as a lever.
