Geology

We dug deep
to explore all the layers of us
and to expose them one by one
The outer curst was solid first
with rigid tectonic plates
We used to wear them as masks

But underneath things were more liquid
And hidden undercurrents
and seismic waves could make
the upper layers shake

We dug even deeper
And the deeper we went
the more the temperatures increased
The magnetic fields pulled us
Forces we couldn’t resist

Until we reached
the deepest depth of love
And we both melted
in hot burning magma
that could only go up
In a fountain of lava
the volcano erupted

  1. Beautiful analogy and I do love that ending with volcanoes erupting. It is fun to play with images like this and you do it well 🙂 Of course, the deepest depths are actually rock solid, but maybe that is relevant to (David shut up with a knowledge of science). Lovely post Marieke 🙂
