when I step into the river

the happiness of a drop of water

By CAPublished 2 months ago • 1 min read

when I step into the river that separates us

to lean in, feet slipping on silk stones, falling

face down in full force for love

or to failing, back flat, smack

into the letting go

the happiness of a drop of water


love poems
