Promise Medo promise me you will always be there even when the shadows gather their sheaves and this dying rustle an expunged air when the tides pick up their volcanic steam unleashing fury on this battered shell do promise me you will never leave me even when my breathless heart tolls a bell faint clanging notes of diluted sweetness whisper of a faraway living well let me sip of its ever cool freshness let me drink of the warmth that is your love oh, shield me from this threatening darkness as my lids droop and take their final bow promise me you will stay true to our vows Copyright © Celestine Nudanu (25/10/13)
