Heathcliff

written by: Joyce Butler

@joycebwriter

 

I see him out there
moving rainfall,
muddying
his blue-black hair.

The wind follows,
a shadow keeper:
of wailing creature's
minds,
thrust open:
tidal waves
across the sky.

His heart:
fists beating.
My love,
retreating.

 

NOTE FROM THE AUTHOR:

Inspired by the book Wuthering Heights by Emily Brontë.
