(virginia, usa)

...are you really


i open my window
to let my soul
wander
in search
for you,

cold draft came
with vengeance
giving me goose bumps
but i endured
mumbling your name

i sat down
bowing my head
to more frustration
to a sight of a squirrel
digging nuts in rubble

bright idea
i called your number
listening to your fading voice
“i call you later”

    i like the 'bowing your head' part
    it is like i am watching a scene while outside a window

    Very good! the first three verses remind me of 'The Song of Wandering Aengus'. The last: a modern version of it. Well done! (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Christina Georgina Rossetti

Where sunless rivers weep
Their waves into the deep,
She sleeps a charmed sleep:
Awake her not.
Led by a single star,
She came from very far
