Poem by Elizabeth Esguerra Castillo
At a distant horizon my mind drifts away
cascading shadows follow me everywhere
even in my dreams where your silhouette haunts me
your smile still lingers, those eyes that seem to tell me I should stay
In the afterglow, I can still see traces of splendid moments we had
Cut short by destiny as hearts kept distance with words which remained untold.
Your sultry silhouette haunts my every breath
Succumbing to love’s call even if it will be against all odds
There is something about the way you make this heart quiver
Always bringing me back to you no matter how far I roam.
That wicked silhouette framing a broken soul
Pierced my deepest core the moment I had to let you go
But only time and destiny can foretell if ever this yearning will lead me back to you once more…
