A Poem by jacob erin-cilberto


on the lam

 

 

the hiding heart beats

beneath a thin skin of love

your strip search found it

If your invited to start exploring everything with your bare hands, then your bound to find something of interest. Even if you're not allowed to keep what you find....Winner winner, chicken dinner.

Such brevity and yet a world of meaning. We radiate love whether we realise it or not and the one meant to find it often will. It is not always hidden so deeply either but when stripped down to basics then the beat is heard loudly to those who recognise that energy and sound. Some vultures and some angels...brilliant piece Jacob :)

The fewer the words if done correctly as you have done here brilliantly,the higher the impact.A single word can be worth a thousand pictures or more.

Loved this one! No matter how a person tries to hide his or her emotions, it is not possible. The truth is revealed. Ofttimes, too late to prevent another heart from breaking. Lydi**
