Rooted Deep – Poem of the Month – May 2020

Rooted Deep

Days, weeks, months
of verbal battles
and silences 
Jockeying for post position
in a race of insanity
Who can shout the loudest?
Who will be heard?
Who can inflict
the most pain?
Where is the breaking point?
 
and there it was
 
The finality of action
A divisive statement 
spat like venom from
a snake’s jaws
The words slowly resonating
and the brain processing
 
It was at that darkest moment
we crossed the Delaware
 
Together
 
The coin had dropped
in the slot
The words ceased
and silence prevailed
 
A rainbow appeared
as clarity was found
 
A tumultuous synergy
ingrained in the soul
A dying ember destined
to be the eternal flame
 
Sometimes blinded
and confused
but tethered
by heart strings
A love with roots deep
from another time
Strong
Impenetrable
Everlasting
