Lava Fury - Poem by Mellisa Salazar

lava flows and so does water

is there something that you’re after

you won’t find it here nor there

if you know you are love

you won’t even care

up and down and left and right

forever and ever you could fight

tired forever and eternally after

what you’re looking for is


Topic(s) of this poem: choice, fear of self, fight, laughter, life, water

    If you knew you were already the very thing you are seeking maybe you wouldn’t exhaust yourself (Report) Reply

    if you know you are love.............did you mean loved?
    i like the poem's flow, but it doesn't make (for me) complete sense. not that a poem HAS TO. i'd combine the last 5 lines into one stanza.
    laughter is a very good thing to seek, as long as one doesn't find it is often directed towards the 'seeker', a bad way! bri :)
