Westward

by Ivy Rozen 2 years ago in love poems
Report Story

Will you follow me?

I always knew I’d travel west

Pioneer woman, chasing the sun

You told me to be at my best

“Darling”

You told me before I left

You always knew that I’d be more

And I carry these letters unsent

Will you follow me?

Will you follow me westward?

Can you find me?

Can you make me feel any better?

Because I just don’t know

When I turn to go

Should I say "I’ll see you later"?

Or should I say "goodbye forever"?

Will you follow me?

Will you follow me westward?

Do you think I’ll ever say

All these words

Caught in my throat

Still unheard?

I dream of sunsets

And I’m driving this long road

My dreams are out west

I wish you’d beg me not to go

We stare into each other’s eyes

And fight what we won’t say

But can we cough up a “goodbye”

Or “’til another day”?

New horizons we each look toward

Can’t slow down keep moving forward

Our feelings packed, and still ignored

It’s true, I adore you

But I’m headed westward

Will you follow me?

Will you follow me westward?

Do you think I’ll ever say

All these words

Caught in my throat

Still unheard?
