i turned around,
but i could
never turn back,

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

the ears
strain
to memorize,

the sound
of your footsteps
walking away,

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

the eyes,
painfully
blindsided,

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,

but,
in my heart
i refuse to fold.
