Poet’s Corner: I Remain

I watch you walk away,
Until you are reduced to a shadow;
A memory;
A living dream.

You do not look back,
Still, tears leave their trail,
Each one falling,
Evaporating;
Reminding me:
Of  Sahara’s Summer;
With your blistering winds of passion,
And now,
Your absence fueling
My aching soul:
Screams of cacophonic tones–
Crying out for your return.
Shredding mistakes;
Screeching, this is our love.

Come home.
Do not leave me
In this searing sea alone.
Do not let the winds blow
Sands up around me,
Pitting what was;
Casting the tomb
Of what could be.

I will remain here until your return.
This is my promise to our dream.
Though I have not a cloud in the sky
To shelter me through such a storm–
I will remain;
I will.

I Will Remain
