I left you a note but you never showed
at our hidden place
I waited there for two days I wanted just
to see your face

Yet I can stay here no more they say
I must go to a new home
Yet without you .....I just can't leave and
go there alone

I was told to stay away from you
you were too good for me
They all said go ....go away now
leave the girl ....leave her be

But they could never know could they?
just how our hearts weathered
But two days is long enough to wait out
your heart ? be tethered

Torn .....broken ....perhaps you
are too young for me or I too old
Is it only the heart of this man
growing .....more bold?

I remember when we stared down over the cliffs
and planned all our tomorrows
Bury my heart at bottom my love
I leave behind our sorrows

What an amazing picture of cave/rock paintings. And I really like the poem -- dark, moody, sorrowful, and very believable. I hope you are having a great day. Theresa

Very beautifully written, it shows how strong the emotion love is, the strongest I believe. Voted up my fellow poet :)
