A Violent Flourish Of Love


A violent flourish of love,
rushing and bursting, in veins and arteries.
Breathing life into old aching bones.
Pumping muscles with a fast paced rhythm.
The support scheme of old aged couples,
The soother of scratches of young toddlers.
Love, like an overflowing river.
Racing down river beds, Bursting stone damns.
More than a poem,
More than any man.

poet Emily Jane Brontë

I am the only being whose doom
No tongue would ask no eye would mourn
I never caused a thought of gloom
A smile of joy since I was born

In secret pleasure - secret tears
