And the River Flows from 2007


You see me broken
Softly I have spoken
Words that seem to have no meaning
Touch me, in this life I've got to be dreaming
Because the coldness of your breath
Freezes the rest
Of my being that stands with a plastic smile
Holding my plastic heart all the while
I told you it hurt but you said it was mere words
Oh, how if I could take your hurt away I would
But life doesn't allow me to carry that weight
So I stand in this frozen state
Icicles crystallize in my mind
But time sweet time is so kind
And the sun will shine upon me once more
And melt away my dismay on a golden shore
Where icicles become tears and rivers flow

    A huge amount of strength & sadness in this writing. The sacrifice, the need, the solitude. Incredibly done!

    Very touching and human! We suffer dear Cindy, in the degree we do not accept reality! We have to move on. Future means looking ahead and not behind! Beautifully expressed! Thank you!
