Farewell By Wayne Russell

Hands friction, melting intrusive block of ice, heart encased,
no morning thaw.

Ocean's carnal wave envelop me, undertow pulling me down,

Goodbye to love and all that, farewell to that elusive dream.

Depart now, into my past woman of my dreams, so elusive, I
shall remember you and our time, so limited.
