At bay… (August 21st FFF)

I was invited (well, not personally, but still…) to join the Fandango’s Friday Flashback!

Fandango scrolls back, every Friday, and gives a second chance to a post he had published on the same date the year before. I thought it was a great way to remember some of the stuff I did a while back, and I decided to participate…

So here it is!

Previously published on August 21st of 2019, here is a little piece of poetry for you to revisit. I just learnt that this would most probably be my second to last participation to this weekly prompt, since Fandango has announced he would cease to publish some of his challenges (read more here) at the end of the month. What a shame, I know. But we still have a week to go, and here is today’s flashback.  I hope you’ll enjoy it (again). And where ever you are, stay safe and well 🙂

You have no idea…
The efforts I make, hiding
Behind the mask
Circling, always far enough
Always in your back
Safe from a quick look
Over you shoulder,
My shoe soles stained,
With the dried blood
Of those who tried
To love you, in vain…

Your voice floats
Luring souls like
Fire attracts moths
In the air I feel your lips
Casting spellbound smiles
Promise of the sweetest kiss…

But I’m not naive,
Nor am I a fool. For,
The well of you heart
Can be
The deadliest pool.
And for every step
Towards you
I take two steps away,
Though I’ll always
Be yours,
I shall remain at bay…
