UNTITLED POEM

ash looking sad1.jpg

I have followed you.

I have followed you.

 

I have followed you

until I felt I could follow you no more

but still I have followed you.

I have followed you into lost lands

and I have followed you

leaving behind all that I have ever found comfort in.

 

I have followed you.

 

Oh how I have followed you

and now you have gone.

 

At first

I lost sight of you

so I followed your scent.

But the rain washed away every trace.

So I followed your presence

but the wind weaved into it.

And I hated myself for letting go.

 

Oh how I have followed you

and it’s all that I’ve ever done.

So tell me where it is I turn.

For behind there is no one left for me.

I left them all

just so that I could

follow you.
