The Morning Before

The morning before you leave
so many words stuck in my throat,
Lodged in my heart, shattering inside,
blocked by rebellious emotions.

How endless the days will be,
tortuous weeks of unwilling
slavery to the upcoming
months of endless missing you.

Worry over your safety and health,
fear of the future unknown,
the possibility of a lifetime
without you in it with me.

Insecure in the commitment
of love, of fidelity, of evermore.
The lure of exotic lands,
fascination in foreign peoples.

Abject terror of the oceans wrath,
swallowing ships hale and strong.
Luring men to her deepest depths,
with her hypnotic seas-song.

Hold me now before you go,
your presence substantial and real
breath warm on my neck to keep my heart from freezing when you’re gone.
