I called your name

A Poem by Coyote Poetry


Just words and good music.


I called your name

Beautiful lady is weeping for me. I departed for unknown destination. I didn’t know. First tears will take us to weight-full memories and places amidst lonely descended wants and needs.

She told me. I was mad with anger. Joined a war and would forget promises made. I would forget her face.

I didn’t know. Her first tears and last tears for me would mark me forever. Leave me with agonizing  grief, that would be learned when I returned home from my wars. Learning her bleeding heart found someone who would stay with her and entwine their two lives together.

I knew I soiled a sweet love. I had captive a sweet woman and left her for the gamble of war and the highway. She told me once. True love leave two people with the oneness in heart and mind. I love you so and I believe you love the wine and song more then me.

Dear woman knew.  I wanted the wine and song. I drink till I’m not drunk and I walk to the deep sea.

I called your name and I knew. You would not come.
