"A Slow Burn" by Eric Wayne Flynn

"A Slow Burn"

Balance change, remain true

For not a pretentious whim

A wave that fails to reach the shore

Trapped in and upon the ocean and all it's depths

The immense weight of liquid life

Love flooding my being

Pretty brown eyes

Beauty can float

A creature in the dark

In this cold, keep warm by me

Assume we want the devil

Proclaim we are truth

Valor inside that of the rose

Tulips and kisses for the giver of life

Love; challenged upon all rocks

Strength to live

To lift

To light

The flame, a candle, a conversation

Knowledge of each other

Truth and salvation

A slow burn

      Thanks ChristineMarie, I'm sure one day I'll get around to creating a book of some of my work. I appreciate the fact you feel it just that they have such an outlet. Thanks for the support and kind words, Eric.

      Eric,

      "Balance change...beauty can float...love, challenged upon all rocks." Poet, you've composed a strong contemporary beat of the patient flame of affection. Where can I buy your poetry book(s)? You say: Nowhere! Get going dude, you got what it takes...photographs and words all of it!
