The Abyss Revisited - Poem by Gainor Ventresco Laney

Walking away from the ashes
I took one long look back
closed my eyes
stood on the edge
and with your arms around me,
jumped into the clear and crystal promise of the abyss
And for the first time
in a long time
maybe never before
the ground has not rushed up to meet me
The storm has broken and the wind against my face is carressing
The clouds part for us-
Love is raining in my heart

    I think it is a beautiful poem, the Abyss being the pain of failed relationships in the past, now promise. (Report) Reply
