Gone

Lost in the abyss

Heard voices behind

Gorgeous, was it you?

Another female sound

Certainly it wasn’t mine

Wasn’t it early for adieu?

She left and he followed

Searching for nothing

Gorgeous where were you?

Their shadows left behind

Did God really hear my plea?

Why gorgeous couldn’t see?

Dashed with the wind of beauty

Gorgeous, how to unlatch

That gentleness inside you?

How to unmute my lips?

You were not paying attention

Vanished chasing another

Always been there waiting

Gorgeous, where are you?

No response. His gone…
