She Is Afraid, He Is Tired..

Poem by James McLain

She is he,
and he is She.
The two,
now lost, loves heart.
And bright,
the yellow sun.

You once we're two,
as one,
and ran around the world.
Inside both heads.

He fell inside loves fire.
And she,
his red heart pumping burned

Both fires,
burned ice cold hot.
Within Her,
light did give us form.

Over shadows love,
swept out black coals.

Your smile, twin lips.
He kissed, both miss.


His face, from that.
Bright coals, still hiss.

Now alone again,
he walks into.

Loves,
loving great full moon.

    Is it poetry,
    I loved it! This really spoke in a succinct way of the the love so strong even in loss and time gone. Even when challenged by distance. Memory is our true scrapbook where we go to remember and embrace our precious lives with those we have loved and have loved us. You made your point in a very creative run of consciousness fashion; I found it quite refreshing and fun! . Blessings Kathy(Report)Reply
