Babylon

Babylon

A Poem by Ana B.

I’ve got one breath left. What to do with it….

From a whisper to a scream…one breath…

I’ve got this piece that doesn’t seem to fit

In this ocean with no bottom and no depth

 

Your heart’s a flicker to this flame…

A burning fire, heating me at night

Will I be able to stay sane…

When you promise to hold me tight?

 

Chasing snowflakes…again

Those who feel, can’t claim armistice

Chasing snowflakes…even in the rain…

Cause heart is war and love…a pacifist.

Thank you :)
Aloha Ana, .... and babylon still falls, love and war reside in the same heart I think. You are so lovely to read. I like the flowing contrasts and how you paint with fine detail. The second stanza is beautiful Ana, very intimate, warm & romantic. Mahalo for your gift of words. Izzy
