(For Dónall) Telephone cuddling


Alone in the dark,
I cuddle the cold receiver
... receiving...

... enfolded
in the embrace of
your gentle voice...

my cheek resting on
the phantom
of your warm chest.

Your steady heartbeat
pulsing in memory,
rocking me
quietly
into dreams

    What a beguiling title! This is truly beautiful - a lullaby of love, and all through the medium of 'the cold receiver' - superb! S :) (Report) Reply

poet Christina Georgina Rossetti

Where sunless rivers weep

She sleeps a charmed sleep:
Awake her not.
Led by a single star,
She came from very far
