Penchant of a Pensive Poetess

Written by: Camille Rose Castillo

Relieve me of this cruel
Subterranean passion
Or douse dispiriting reason
Cast out the angst
Heart distressed
Regain your soothing rhythm

Return to me
Resilience
Revoke this grim oppression
Please recall
Lost resolve
Compel its requisition

Don’t consign me to
Nor evoke malign surrender
Be wise, heart of mine
For luring wind songs
Are the primary cause
Of many a heart’s demise
