a drop of water


a drop of water once spoke of a river
a river endless as time
its bright waters passionately streaming
and waves ebbing a joyful rhyme

you don't know

you don't know
how much
my fingers
bled
when i
removed
the thorns
from
your heart

you are

you are
        a rare creature
  a myth
       buried
   in a secret page
     of literature
one day
  the world will have
       to dig in
and exhume you
    from my heart
to see
 how your soul
spills
  from your body
             giving light
     to the stars

do not move a mountain

do not move a mountain
with your faith
it is a crime
only move me
with your love
and mountains will swim 
across the oceans
trees will touch the stars
for even a rose could love a thorn
if you were mine
