River


Drifting down the river of thought
I reach a crucial fork,,
there is one who loves me
and one whom I love

Unable to choose, I fret for days
weighing against each other
the pros of both ways
but unable to move I am

Then I use another approach
First without her then you
I imagine a future epoch
weighing what I lose each time

And then my rivers coalesce
as frothing eddies turn blue
There never was a dilemma
and there never were two
'cause its you my darling
its always been you ...

  4. Kremo, I like your ending "line". Would your poet have used it on the other as well?
    ..
    BTW, I'm starting reading now but I will count how many guys thought river and wrote 'love.'
    You and I make two so far.
