Love Me Like the River
loves the canyon
Love me like the word
igneous loves the g
just below the surface of its name.
Yes love the layers of only
sand and silt. And yes the cold
stone. And yes you will break
again and again but you won’t
stop even though all that’s left
of you is the man your love made.

Thought-provoking turn at the end- the river’s identity is what it carves, not itself.

“all that’s left is the man your love made.”
love repetition and ending
Unrelenting, sacrificial…yes! This is beautiful.
The first two stanzas say so much-needed I couldn’t stop reading on.
