Albatross - Leaping off the cliff of affection

"There is love of course. And then there's life, its enemy." - Jean Anouilh


Fingers brush through your hair 
your leaving me there, 
Floating on my ocean dream.

Feet run to your kiss
I say farewell to bliss, 
Crashing along the windy cliff.

Eyes transfixed on your stare, 
of you I must beware, 
Chasing me on the rocky edge.

Mind searching for a hint, 
your affection leaves no imprint, 
Leaping off to fall free.

An albatross on a long flight, 
a blind journey with no insight, 
Asking "Where will I land?"
