EVERY TIME YOU GO AWAY!

Written by: k k iloduba jnr

Alone by the river-side
where whispers hear each other bid,
i m caught in the quiet.

I listen to the murmuring waters,
where more is heard 
than uttered.

I hear nothing.
I hear nothing.
All there be is silence!

In bed sorrow returns.
I m reminded that nothing 
can bring back the moments that we shared.

Now, even now, i listen to the dark.
I hear nothing.
I see nothing.
I feel nothing.
The sorrow here does not sleep
...every time you go away.
