Love paradox 1

It  seems  pre-destined
That  my canoe should
 never  make it across
Your  river of  love
Getting always sucked in 
At the  vortex in its middle
Only to resurrect itself
As a triumphant memory
Or as a  likeable  defeat
Left floating all over you 
As clouds bearing the rains
That  sustain your flow
That should pour over you
But never to win over you
But ever wins you over.

    Jag, I truly struggled with justifying the act of taking the poetry of others, and separating it into placements. I read this strong poem several times in a row. Thank you for supporting my contest!

    Jag, my dear friend...Hope you had a great day...I knew I liked this poem for a reason and it doesn't surprise me that Chris liked it too! A hearty congratulations on this poem that just floated thru your pen! Gwendolen

    Dang, Jag! I really like this one almost as much as I like the one you wrote today...The analogy of a canoe in the river and the vortex at the middle...(we call them "sink holes" here...they can be mighty dangerous takin' one's life!) At the conclusion you have resolved yourself in this paradox which is so intense. You stirred my heart again with this one...hard to explain it tho'. Enjoyed this immensely..another fav! :) Come visit my Ground Hog Blog.
