Ella has been in my thoughts again…
The Logic of Returning
The world has turned while I have slept;
It’s dark outside, and late.
The promises I’ve over-kept
Burn thankless in the grate.
Relief and agony we spoke
To separate our ways,
As passion bowed beneath the yoke
Of ordinary days.
How far she’s travelled down her track,
While I have stood, bereft.
How true it is we can’t go back,
Long Gone and Never Left.
– Neil Capstone, January 2014
