nightfall

nightfall by anelephantcant

I often wonder through the day
Where you go when you get that call
I never ask and you don’t say
I only hope you’re here before nightfall

I’ve loved you from the day we met
It was not just my heart you stole
You took my peace of mind and soul and yet
I hope you’ll return before nightfall

I have no desire to tie you down
Pinned like a butterfly to a sad dank wall
You are always free to move around
But I hope you’re back before nightfall

Because when you’re not here I worry
I want to know you’re safe that’s all
You don’t need to even hurry
But please come home before nightfall

My life is strangely void without you
I feel that I’m much less than whole
I don’t resent the pain you put me through
I want my arms around you come nightfall

About AnElephantCant

An artist/writer/poet combination whose blogs reflect an approach to life that celebrates nature and takes a tongue-in-cheek view of most issues. So you get rhymes and doodles, photographs and comment. Irreverent and irrelevant. Occasionally funny, sometimes serious, mostly pointless. https://anelephantcant.me/
