All I Give Away by Thompson Emate

Poet Bio

These I wrote for you,
These I kept for you,
These books I archived for you,
Page by page I wrote,
Page after page I imprint,
Those words unsaid,
Those words unexpressed,
Of how much deep
from within I care,
Of how much wider than the sea,
My love for you,
Of how sincere and true,
My heart beats for you,
These I drew from the fountain,
That flows from within,
But now you’re gone,
But now you have left,
With nothing to say,
Your door you’ve shut,
Without a farewell kiss,
Am cut to the deep,
Am slashed through,
All these I’ll let go,
Unhealthy it is for me to keep,
I’ll let fire have them,
And erase all about you,
A remembrance of you.
