return to me, my love and beloved
without you here I belong to the obscurity of shadows,
deep, dark and, weighted down.
I’m a prisoner held captive, chained and bound,
sinking within the depths of the roaring river rapids.
I fight not to drown but to stay afloat,
with hopes of reaching the shores of your light…
your prolonged absence sinks my heart,
as the river rocks tear at my being,
gripping and ripping me,
my limp body is torn and weakened,
as I float, lifeless to the shores.
one last gasp of air freed from my lungs,
my blurred vision reveals your footprints
in the sands where you once stood…
I wasn’t worth the wait,
my soul rests uneasily on the banks of the river,
a prison of pain shadowed in darkness.
