Jon Nakapalau

that love which you leave behind

is always looked for again

but it may not be where you left it
moving on itself

and it is only this perspective
in the setting of the sun

that casts shadows far
like ghost net of what could have been

now it is so bled
that to catch it would require hope

no longer to be found
when eyes eclipse past dreams

one of the cruelest lessons
than only age can teach

is that your heart can echo beat
for something that is dead

and you can still stumble hollow for years
like a puppet pulled by strings

for audience that has left so long ago.
