your river/

©2021 Michael Raven

i'm standing here
watching rivers flowing
time moves slowly
without you here
watching rivers slowly

my words are broken
when i try to hold them
and my fingers hold you
fingers broken beholden
to shaping shattered words

over and over and over
dizzy in the head and
falling over

i'm standing here
to wait to hold you
watching time flick click over
i'm standing still
watching for your river

all the words flow
down tumbling water
i drink you in and
fingers touching lips
make me sober

you are the light
you are the lover
you are the sigh
tumbling over and over
through my loving
head

you are the light
over, over and over
you are the song
over, over and over
you are the river
flowing through me

you are the word
the river over and over
i'm standing still
watching for your river song
