tonight i'm afraid





tonight i'm afraid
i will lose sight of you once again
for the eighth or ninth time,

i lost count.

this time i suspect
it will be forever
as i can find no sway.

i veer away

to my safe harbor
for i am fresh out of stock
and the essentials for living,

we are all dying here.

but remember, i shall wait for you
confident of your fix
as to where i winter; disguised

and shrouded in obscurity.

unlike times past it will be
your charge to find me hence
where in silence i stay

moored

to my memories of you
and those of you
with me.

fair winds to you.






tonight i'm afraid

.. Since this page was lost for some long hours today, i thought the fear was too big to post ;)
.. If seriously, i like this poem very much, it rewinds me some of my own moods and feelings...
Very beautiful, thank you :)
