I’ll Follow You

I’ll follow you 
through the streets of London
the umbrella alleys 
scarlet, crimson and coral
suspended in the open sky 
my vermillion laced up
converse tapping after you
rivalling the bright hues 
of the liveliest streets 

I’ll follow you 
through the cityscapes of Tokyo
dazzling neon blues 
pale against your eyes
the oceans expanse shies 
from the certainty of your gaze
the brightening horizon
reveals the depth that you hide
more profound than my prosody 

I’ll follow you 
traipsing through the maps
uncertain; uncharted 
my footsteps a dashed line
while you lie like a dot
that marks my destination
trekking off the map 
off the edge of civilization 
I follow the path you lay

A love poem for this Sunday. I am unhappy the weekend is over so soon. I’m back to my main city for the time being, my schedule has overturned itself. Apologies if I come across as morose. It is humid, dull and uninspiring during this heatwave (36 to 34 degrees celsius!)

I am trying to keep my spirit alive, reading your works does wonders.
Thanks for reading 💕
How was your weekend?
