L trainin’

The river of people flow into the subway

Rushing like a waterway from stop to stop

Upstream and Downstream

Downtown to Uptown

From place to place and point to point

The river of people flow into the subway some on their phones on the way to homes and everywhere in between

Their heartbeats create heat as the trains ebb and flow from bank to bank

Wading through the sea of people

I find my way in the flow

Unstoppable this wave of flesh coursing through the city

The river of people flow into the subway rushing like a waterway

And I find my way in flow

Does the L go to the O?

 

Diamond like Love

Their love was made of diamonds so she could wait for him and he could wait for her…
I think that I have made love much harder than it needs to be. Listening to voices that weren’t my own. Not understanding what love really is. Even being too hard on myself and him too.
Its been a rough couple of months. Showtime show worthy. The memory that often brings me back to center is of him holding me and me feeling safe enough to sleep.
Maybe that’s love. Love holds on to you securely even when you have lost your mind and patiently waits for you to find your way back.
I have a love like that. I do. But I’ve got to make sure that I can evenly exchange. I must love myself in a strong secure unwavering way. I believe I do.
He tells me he’s not going anywhere. It seems that neither am I.
Their love was made of diamonds so she could wait for him and he could wait for her…
August I am waiting.
