To Be Guarded is To Love.

March 24th, 2011

A wall on a lonely landscape

Keeping most of me from you,

In bright sun does hair fly

In the face of emotions kept

From the creek, damned

To only be let out by self betrayal,

A flood where streams once flowed

With the care of gravity. To have

Water without thought and a path

To lay back in,

Let river run over root,

Fall over rock,

Cascade past barriers keeping

My hand from yours and your heart

From mine. If only

Ground flow escapes barring measures,

Protecting the integrity of respect

And a budget for pain,

I look forward to the day our waters surface and meet

At the fork, where hills between us submerge,

Joining, we hold together tight,

Journeying to lower lands,

Awaiting the unbridled expanse of the seas.
