when heaven breaks

by Lindsay Sanders

it’s not that the world
splitting in half
makes no sound,
but real love is violent
relentlessly clutching,
pulling, ripping lies out of truth.

light breaks through in streams,
oh the fate of darkness
in the presence of love-
just as dust under
a raging waterfall.

“wake up, wake up!”
love cries-
“truth is at your side
and life is the ocean
you’re sinking in.”

it’s not that the heart
splitting in half
makes no sound.

but real love is violent
relentlessly clutching,
pulling, ripping lies
out of truth.

"but real love is violent relentlessly clutching, pulling, ripping lies out of truth."--Couldn't agree with you more. Fantastic.

"and life is the ocean you're sinking in" - damn, this is relentlessly good writing.
