The Stream

I'm swept away
Carried in a stream of consciousness 
Pulled along connected and opposing thoughts
Concussed by revelations

Pulled beneath the current
To the depths of understanding
Rising to the surface
Churned in heartache
Wrapped in passion
Bouncing off rocks of indecision

Grasping at straws along the shore
Letting go
Overpowered 
Getting that sinking feeling
Being lifted 
Oh what a ride
Heading to open water
Mixing 
All thoughts become one
Stillness
Tranquility
Thankful
Returned to the source

    I enjoyed this one! In a busy world it isn't always easy to become still enough to access the source of ourselves, our inner peace and strength. Well done

    Excellent way of stream of thoughts worded with beautiful deep sensational feelings. It's philosophically adorned. Loved always, bl

    This is beautifully penned. Did you mean "Bouncing of rocks" or "Bouncing off rocks"? This writing is certainly a great metaphor for the roller coasters of our daily lives.

    Whoa Richard! This is deep - I don't want to imagine getting swept away- the thought is scary(I prefer being on solid ground) but I understand the feelings you portray in the poem...it puts things into perspective. Well penned, intense, touching and well stated.

    I love the water but it can be frightening at times. So nice to have your visit Vicky.
