Finding Love Through The Debris

written by: Karen Hayward



And then it settled back down,
Like some unknown hunger
had been sated
or a thirst I'll never understand was quenched
and in that moment
I felt my soul as a separate entity
from my body
and the how's and the why's
were laced in a clarity
that the human mind cannot decipher
so I didn't try to
some things need to be felt to be trusted
and that's how I knew
I guess that's the answer to the infamous
"How did you know it was love?"
As for the 'When' that's a tale for another day
