Run Away



Silence like dew drops on her lips,
her head resting gently on my hips,
eyes like mirrors to a forgotten land,
her breath like the rain and sullen sand,

besotted by her clumsy charm,
a smile that could do no harm,
yet the dagger firmly did she plant,
like a poet carving out my heart,

as if some ancient scent, she fades away,
a fragrance lost to the vagaries of the day,
but as darkness descends from sky to sea,
like a forgotten promise she haunts me,

as my hair ripens to a gravelly white,
questions like candles this world will light,
like a totem around my neck she'll stay,
and all I'll ever do, is run away.

Hi Imroz,

I found this picture in Clip Art. It leads here to you.
Hope you get this from your outdated site.
I want to know where you got the picture from,
because I'd like to use it in my blog tomorrow, Spt. 16, 2016.
My blog is hwbrycewrites.com
Sorry for the lateness, but finding pictures is always a time-consuming endeavour for me.

BTW I love your poem(s).

Thanks,

__Herb
