So Deep It Goes

So Deep It Goes

A Poem by Kelly Scheppers



So deep it goes

 

 

 

Love walks into our lives

masquerading a false bravado,

beseeching us to fall.

 

It withers

when unattended to,

it scars

leaving an indelible impression

like footprints in the snow...

 

so deep it goes.

It does indeed, it saturates the soul and life becomes unknown for a while when love dares to enter...as always dear Kelly, you write with such beauty and flow xo

Gee
Hopefully, fingers crossed, I will never have to bear these scars, although I know many that do.
Beautifully written Kelly. Hope you are well.

Indeed, the impression is so deep that it can never be totally filled in....it remains. If the love stays, that is good. If it has left, well, it leaves that hole....forever. Beautifully written, Kelly. Lydi**

We've been friends a long time, Kelly....always here for you.
It sinks into the depths of the soul, weighing heavy in the heart, and we find harbor beneath broken wing. So lovely.

So kind of you to say, Linda. Thank you so much for the joy you bring me, today!
Is that you I am seeing on the other side of this mirror? For a moment I thought you were looking into my soul. Have I told you lately how deeply your words move me?

This poem, like all of your writing, leaves a deep impression on the heart and mind. I often feel, while reading, like I am looking at a beautiful painting for the first time. Few poets can create such vivid images with mere words. This will be a keeper for me!

I appreciate the warmth of your words, Dara. Thank you so much!
Love sings and fades into mere black and white - perhaps in this case: snow white. Kelly, you've always, always found the perfect way to describe imperfection - as you do everything else.

What a wonderful thing to say...thank you, dear Emma!
Strong words and depth of emotion, beautifully expressed. Bleak, stark imagery so on-point. “Love Hurts” and woe the cicatrix. Love this Kelly.
