No plea, drift and sway

Drift and Sway | Poetry Remix No. 6

“Slowly, slowly drift and sway.
But it never goes away.”

I have no plea, so now, what can I say?

I’ve gotten myself in trouble again.

Because, just like a long reverb, you stay;

every word you say drifts inside my head.

And now I’m in trouble again because

as I drift, you’re the song that’s on repeat;

the sad song of a prisoner of love.

As I drive the street, love won’t hear my plea

to set me free. So now I’m stuck in queue:

Mind and soul have no rest inside of me.

I’m in trouble as I’m captive to you.

Slowly, slowly drift and sway.

But it never goes away.
