Earthquake – Author Debra McLain

Shadow couple --- Image by © Paul Burns/Corbis

Separation, caused by a fault line of fear;
fractured by unspoken boundaries.

Aftershocks from the past;
induce tremors in my weary heart.
Energy and rapid movements;
kept under control, by fear of rejection.

Brief moments of calmness;
grant me hope of eternal tranquility.
Love; the force between two souls.
He takes my hand, we leap into the core.
