Laura DiNello – Couple Reading

you and books there
me and books here

is that a connection
can i create one

letters and poems
books and pens
characters more pens

is that a connection
can i invent one

write one
perhaps

then the depression
a loved one suicide
and the reading
and the singing
and the walking

is that a connection
can i rely on one

poems around the globe
we as work of art

rubens

Peter Paul Rubens – Daniel in the lion’s den

when you see a loved one
slipping herself into madness
with the consent
from her loved ones–

when you see her losing it
and can’t hold her into place
or yourself in somewhere else
than sadness–

when the string is so thin
it vanishes in the air–
when the only light
comes from our hearts–

when life makes no sense
just love can hold
us tight–

and the only pray i say
goes like this:
you can loose your mind
but never your truth

i’ll be here holding you
if you go and if you stay
our hearts are together
wherever you may be–
