The Root that Planted Deep


Deep
Deep
Don't run too deep
You may not find the way back home

What are you escaped from?
What you try to avoid
Till you hide in the deep deep forest?

Deep
Deep
Don't think too deep
You will drown in your darkest mind

What are you afraid for?
What you try to fight
Till you are losing where's up and down in deep deep ocean?

Deep
Deep
Don't look too deep
You are being allured by those beautiful eyes

What if the thing you called curse is bound you forever?
What if you finally see
The truth that lays behind the deep deep abbys?

Deep
Deep
Don't fall too deep
You will not be able to ignore it anymore

What will you do if it's going stronger?
What will happen to you
When it becomes the root that planted deep?

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Browning

After
by Robert Browning

Take the cloak from his face, and at first
Let the corpse do its worst!

How he lies in his rights of a man!
Death has done all death can.
