Leave me not Riverside

By Kevin du Plessis


Please do not leave me behind Riverside,

for, in the centre of all things I stand

that make out my existing stars and land,

the universe itself from me does hide

when I am not there to see or feel

what it chooses to me to reveal.

I beg you Riverside leave me not behind,

for, on your banks I have found a home

that is unrivalled with the views of the blind

who make up the world but has not come.

For god’s sake do not leave me,

for, it is not I who travel from you,

it is you who shifts from me.
