Diving in the River of Love
By Petrouchka Alexieva

I dive in the risky river of love,

I dive deeper and deeper,

swirling in the dam of feelings;

twisting among

bottom stones of my sins;  

jumping from cliffs

of emotional waterfalls.


My heart slows down

in my lonely winter night.

I survive the rough icy waters,

and the risky thin crust

of all frozen lakes. Step by step.

I know, whatever it takes,

I always survive

in the wild River of Love.
