Love Poem: Ensconced

Written by: Josefina Costales


You can't unhinge me from your life
I will get entrenched inside your mind
hound you in your dreams, you 'd wish
to spend your nights in waking hours
I am your nightmare encroaching your days.

I shall pursue you in the most unlikely places,
before first light blushes in the east,
before daytime starts in foggy mist
obscuring clouds floating sweet as cream
I am your shadow trailing you.

I am the smell of pines from the shore
beckoning you into a green paradise
the wind will gradually gentle, the waves become still
and if eternity is plunged in total darkness
hold out your hand - my touch will guide you.
