Drowned Poem by Seamus O' Brian

Drowned

Rating: 5.0


I am a man drowned in a river,
every ripple a reflection,
a delicate facet of you, weightless,
gossamer beauty, yet the composite whole
irrepressible, as your love passes over me,
sweeps around me,
compresses my body to the stony bed
of a river I never intended to cross.
Playful iridescence reminds me
of the magic
of my life made beautiful
by the current of your love,
each laughing splash a memory,
a sun-sparkled fragment of joy;
life that would be darkness
without the light of your love.
Yet the dark hollows and caves, places
our memory would rather not go;
jagged valleys we have fought to cross
now flowing with the depth of your love.
I am a billboard, the history of me
each pixel a beat of your heart.
I am a broadcast, radiolucent
biography, the memory of me
each pulse, each luminous strand
belongs to the strength of your love.
I am a man drowned in a river,
Buried beneath your waves of love.

A beautiful lyrical poem of love and its all consuming power. It flows as the streams of love flow around you. It's going into my favourites' list, Seamus.
