Width Times Distance

Waterfall of lovers
kiss
cascading hidden
emotions
into raging wild
fire
falling with extreme
passion
to the vastly unexplored
flowing
riverbed of harmony's
pleasure.

Floating in a constant stream
of desire
upon the inflated innertube
of life
casting sunbaked doubts
haphazardly
toward the jagged
rocks
that threaten to destroy
simple happiness.

The strength of the rivers
undertow
brings realities
depth
back to sensible
view
the width times
distance
keeps happiness alive
forever.

Wow, Gloria, this is one of your best in my opinion.  Love the "Inflated innertube of life" line.  That coming from one who's hit some pretty sharp rocks ya know!     Good poem.
