Sometimes Love is Like That

Sometimes Love Is Like That

Have you ever walked a mountaintop

in the Rockies, so high aloft

that the air itself grows thin, tired,

your head aches as your stomach roils

and, at night, you lie awake, unwell,

too weary, weak and sick for sleep?

Sometimes love is like that.

Have you ever touched the ocean floor

beneath the bright Pacific blues

down in the deepest depths of darkness

where frightful fishes flee frantic from

things that slither-slink those shadowed seas,

and black water weighs you down like stones?

Sometimes love is like that.

Have you ever lain in flowered fields

on your back, face-up like daisies

and worn the summer warmth upon your skin

like soothing silken robes of sunshine,

felt the gentle drowsy passage of the day

and a peace for which there are no words?

Sometimes love is like that.

Interesting images you have painted TR. I think I like

"""where frightful fishes flee frantic from

the best. Though I'm partial to anything dealing with

water. Must be the Aquarius in me. And I don't mean

my boyfriend. :icon10:
