the last cliff

Click here to hear the poet read his words:

the last cliff

I fall for her completely
it is not hard to understand
her hair the colour of mountain midnight
her skin the shade of burning sand

I love her in broad daylight
and in the darkness where
we met
yet she remains somehow intangible
like an elusive silhouette

I remember when she welcomed me
like a flower does a bee
but now that springtime’s over
she quickly casts
me free

I wonder where I went wrong
think of perhaps maybe what if
but it is too late
now to hold her
I tumble over the last cliff

I have no hope of salvation
and less chance of survival
I see the rocks sit patiently
my arrival

so now my end is imminent
I still feel it does not matter
my life is pointless anyway
I never can forget her

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.

  1. I have lived that one. Great words! I think you do, eventually, forget her,when you truly decide to move on. I had that happen once or twice.
    Have you thought of putting those together for, at least, a kindle book?
    I think it would be a worthwhile project.

Go on, say something, even if it's rude!
