indecisive exploration

by Dancing Rivers   Jul 3, 2017

Once she glanced up into the horizon
sparkling with the silky blue smoke-
of her last cigarette-
she subtly groaned with pleasure-

Wrapped in the satin touch of pain-
she had come this far to see her dreams
manifest in this vision of life
a paradox of love and fear

A dance is all it was in the end
A tango between love and fear.
the true challenge was realising
that love is fear manifested:

Love was just fear on a happy day.

As she jumped off the cliff
onto the cool beach sand
throwing her head back in arrogance
she relived that moment of bliss

When love and fear
became two personalities in one body
fighting always, for the limelight
and she...

She chose to let them both roam free
