I tripped over a branch of love one day,
and fell right onto my face.
My mind was in the clouds,
my thoughts left without a trace.
In a dream I walked along,
my toes never touching the ground.
My feet were moving quickly,
my thoughts were anything but sound.
And although I realized my destination was set,
That the Gods had determined my fate,
With each moment we spent apart,
My heart couldn’t suffer the wait.
And though I walked through a glen of doubt
Unleased only by my hesitant mind
Looking for the slightest excuse
Pulling on any thread it could find
Yet not a thing could dissuade my thoughts,
I wandered on, my head still full of bliss.
And I fell headlong, painlessly dreaming,
Always thinking of the next kiss.
My own voice kept coming from within,
As I bumped my head on the darkened cloud.
But nothing sounded so bright and clear,
As did love, which screamed so loud.
