Why Oh Why...Can'T I?

Why Oh Why...Can'T I?

She put her
hand in my hand

gave me
her lips

to kiss

but her heart
was an horizon

a tantalising rainbow
always just out of reach.

...but her heart was an horizon a tantalising rainbow always just out of reach... wonderful metaphors for the heart out of reach - somewhere between Earth and sky like an horzon or rainbow. I add this poem to my favorites...
A remarkable piece really. Love eludes you even though you appear to be in posession of it. Voted 10.
she hesitated over giving you her heart for just a moment...... perhaps in another second she would have been more assured.... Ruthie: o)
