i turned around,
but i could
never turn back,

the feet it seems,
have a heart
of their own,

the ears
to memorize,

the sound
of your footsteps
walking away,

but the sands
are too soft
and the waves too loud,

the eyes,

for i promised,
in your direction
never to look again,

and while
the earth
moves on,

and the sun
the moon,
continue their hide and seek,

i stay rooted,
sinking, each wave
deeper into the sands,

and even though,
i remain
permanently eclipsed,

i keep my actions,
as my word
given to you,

in my heart
i refuse to fold.
