Temptations of being alone

A picture by my bedside.
Good night, sweet island girl.
I will write and sing forever.
As those outside say
“Better give up now”.
And then inside sleep,
my lips close tightly.
But you are not there.
My tears floating
as a small death, I move on.
Proud to be a lover and a poet.
