Love Has Been Lost At Sea

by Joanna

You have roiled my heart over miles
Over years
Clinging to you as if the very breath in my body
Was bourne out of my love for you
A boon in the desert
Of my heart
Lost are the tears of joy
Making me wish we’d never
Set eyes upon the other
What a cruel fate
To marry my soul
And walk away in strides
Longer than any land legs will carry me
