"I love you."

Simple as that.

Or not that simple.

I am the river;
Rushing waters and angry currents.
Whisking away
All that wished to stay

I am the jagged stones.
The mountain’s alabaster tears,
Lost by the riverbed,
Longing for the mountain instead

I am the wildflowers.
Vibrant colors awaken in spring,
Songs of birds,
Quiet words…

I am the mountain,
Tall and old, wise but still learning.
Watching with wide eyes,
As time passes by.

But the mountain knows,
I know,

That the river’s current,
Smoothes the jagged stones,
Feeds the wildflowers in spring,
That all is one cohesive tale
That would not go on…

Without each other.

This actually was homework for English. We were to write about ourselves.
