All Tangled – a poem by Paul Vincent Cannon

Commitment – Word of the Day

“A fish and a bird may indeed fall in love, but where shall they live.” Elizabeth Gilbert ‘Committed, A Skeptic Makes Peace With Marriage’

 

 

All Tangled

Love is a many complexed thing,
a tangled exploration
of feelings on a threshold privately held,
and to speak it would be to unravel the
mystery unspeakable,
the conundrum of aching, longing,
a certain uncertainty,
shades between black and white,
that hold me fast.

  4. lol it is indeed complex, agree with Tracy’s comment … skilful relationship and parenting manuals would be invaluable but they haven’t been written yet … up for it Paul?
