San Francisco

San Francisco by anelephantcant

Click here to hear the poet read his words:

San Francisco

I met her
once upon a time
in San Francisco
the city
of love and peace
and for the time
that we spent
my heart
to my surprise
with love
and my soul
at long last
was at ease

I felt
that I’d known her
since dinosaurs
wandered the earth
her eyes
held the mysteries
of all time
I believed
she was there
at the birth

she was
a flower
that blossomed
in sunshine
while I’m
a creature
of winter
and rain
I wept
she told me
I must go
I promised
I’d come back

I wept
she told me
I must go
I never
went back there
