Love Finds its Way

We think we fall out

Or we may think it runs dry

Love buries itself

Deep inside tiny pockets

Where it nestles safely in


We attempt to push

Love away from its abode

In an endeavor

To protect ourselves from pain

Only to stand in darkness


We plug up the dam

By blocking that tiny hole

Yet love finds its way

Via a wave of fervor

To drown us in its ocean


We swim against them

As the waves bathe us in light

Why aren’t we floating

As they wash away our pain

Infusing us with splendor

*It’s so amazing that I found these photographs to go with my poetry after I’d written it. I am so blessed to find wonderful visuals that always seem to fit just right. I am very appreciative of the artist who took these incredible photographs! I just can’t get over how well they worked with what I’d written.
