Down By The Quay
and post notes and photos about your poem like Edward Ibeh.
Oh, my love, how I wish...
you were here by my side
so we could both surrender
To this beautiful solitude,
this peaceful, intoxicating silence
I'm blissfully lost; killing precious time.
Time I wish I could stretch...
the length of the Nile River.
Mute, confused ships can't seem
to decide whether they're coming or going
The sky is slowly changing before my eyes
As the cantaloupe melon Sun
fights to stay afloat over the horizon.
Silence is interrupted...
by the ebb and flow
of the faint tides, sweeping time
out of my pristine mind
crying out your name in hushed tones.
We both miss you so.
As the calm wind sighs and whispers
soft yet incomprehensible
language into my pleased ears
I wish you were here
To bask in this soothing
sounds of silence with me
