Left me behind

Left me behind

I should have known that day,
I missed the train; a dreamer
Walking by the sea, in reverie
While you had your practicalities.
You left me behind, running,
Breathless of heart, my soles
Worn down, the weeds you'd
Woven 'round a fool's heart
Tangled my feet, so I fell.
I've been falling ever since,
Dropping from sight and mind.
Stranded in body, more lost
Than a stray without a lead,
You sped away, oblivious or
Careless, you left me behind
Carrying my hopes, my heart
In your hands: ransom of love.
"Oh what a misery it is to have an intellect in splints".

Lovely poem from the heart Saturn.
Thanks for sharing your soul with us.
Take care.
That I might drink, and leave the world unseen.
