Collide

Posting poetry on Tumblr, just to see how far it spreads

New love, born of fire and air,
and the torrential
Rivers.
New love, held back by rock
And the steadiness of
Earth

Razor sharp; this love, born of fire and air
And torrential river-water, and held back
Only by a slim dam of earth, and common sense.
Borne on wings of steel, and foolish hopes,
dashed against rocks of sensibility and reality;
This love dies and is reborn every moment,
As euphoria is crushed and renewed.

There is nothing sensible to this, and silence
Is my only course. But it feels like I am lying.
I am lying. But I will dance Violet’s dance
And let you never be the wiser.

At least that was my intent. But every day,
Aquae Quietem, the Waters of Silence,
press against the dam of my Resolve.
Veritas Murum; the wall of truth.
They threaten to wash it away,
And I wonder: how long until I speak?

How long until I undo myself?
How quick will that flooded river wash away
Us, and our friendship?

Will that be the end of new love,
born of fire and air,  and the torrential
Rivers?
New love, held back by rock
And the steadiness of
Earth?

Veritas omnia vincit.
Omnia vincit Amor;
I love you.
