Loyal

 “She was born to be free, let her run wild in her own way and you will never lose her.”
― Nikki Rowe

stas-svechnikov-32399-unsplash.jpgYour face reflects the cerulean haze 

lost in the morning skies

your eyes resemble the two jewels 

in the obsidian sky

Your laugh and occasional guffaws

 can put the

a thousand

tinkling 

bells to shame

You back is straight

and hair and its curls

 line the banks of a 

gushing river

your kohl-lined eyes

has eclipsed my heart with love

with your fingers 

tracing the beauty in a surreptitious way

your love was never truly mine

as your loyalty is not to me

but to the wide open sky.
