a beautiful piece of heartache …

a beautiful piece of heartache …

A Poem by rivers





















Come swim within this broken silence
the raging river inside beckons

the cadences we hear
are the untamed waters spring forth ,
overflowing , borne this beating heart
eroding this ardent heart's shorelines ,
leaving the thrummed edges wild

prevailing currents , 
no longer able to be contained
within the soul’s boundless margins

restlessly lost and lovely ,
faithfully dangerous wantonness
   
I’ll be your earth and you my sky
feel the calming tide
flood in around us
  
I've been swimming in circles ,
treading water in an eddy of disquietude ,
waiting for the world to turn ;

marooned , fighting swirling currents
meandering through
the shattered places so deep within

how does it feel to be the sky
that bestows rivers' light ?(!)

how does it feel
to be constantly on my mind ?(!)

... what a beautiful piece of heartache ...


Harlon Rivers


postscript :   ... if when you're alone and feel an ethereal presence ,
an undeniable chill in the air imbibes your moment ,


... perhaps it is me :)

what a beautiful poem, I hope she finds it too. your postscript is kinda eerie, but ...strange happenings in the world today, it could happen, it does happen.
