Thirst - Poem by altaira hatton

There's a river of blue
_ _ swiftly through you
From the souls of your eyes
_ your large black shoe

There's a well in your lips
_ deep cool water
Close my eyes in a kiss
_ _ a desert flooding

There's a clear depth
_ _than stone or fire
Another ancient force
_the wind or rain

I have had a dream
_ be your only bridge
Later a lone ferryman
_ _ to your heart

    I really like the way you held the image of the water all through the poem, with interesting variations. It's kind of restrictive the way Poemhuner does not allow initial spaces, so you handled that well by entering underscores. Cheers. (Report) Reply
