THE RIVER BETWEEN


I feel drowning
Not that I cannot swim
I feel blown away
Not that I cannot fly
I feel down
Not that I am moody
I feel you
Who cannot be in my life.


I feel drowsy
Not that I haven’t slept
I feel dizzy
Not that I am about to faint
I feel crazy
Not that I am going mad
I feel you
Who cannot be in my life.


I see darkness
Not that I have no hope
I see light
Not that I backslided
I see crossroads
Not that I cannot decide
I see you
Who cannot be in my life.

I see shadow
Not that I am being followed
I see mirage
Not that I am hallucinating
I see a river
That has no bridge
Beyond it are ridges
That I cannot reach
And you stand at the peak
Who cannot be in my life.

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

When the hours of Day are numbered,
And the voices of the Night
Wake the better soul, that slumbered,
To a holy, calm delight;

Ere the evening lamps are lighted,
