Calling Me Insane

(Image Source: Photo by Caroline Knopf)


your name echoes
in listless waves
in silent hours
and myriad hushes

what if, we could retrace
the shadows of the past
only if we had known back then
that tides never do last

you sailed away in bluish hue
a prince long lost in fables
like a child who's stung by sand
I wrote my tale in pebbles

the love hasn't diminished a bit
and yet I know it's in vain
that longing for you, I breathe and live
as I hear you laugh, calling me insane

  2. "your name echoes
    in listless waves
    in silent hours
    and myriad hushes" the lines whisper that sense of loss so deeply...

  4. I like how you used the elements to describe 'her' feeling: sand, pebbles, hue, shadows. I stood in a corner near that coast whilst she wave goodbye to her forever love.
