Best Poem of Deva De Silva

Come Back!

Come to my door, call my name
Come to my bed, shake me awake
When morning sky yawns
When birds chirp away
As you've done
A countless times before
Stand still, please don't leave
Let me have my fill of your face

Lay down with me in troubled nights
Your body resting in line with mine
Being there only for my sake
As moon glistens on unruly waves
As sand absorbs salty dampen trails
You never left me forsaken
When I drown in self pity
When I tremble in pain
Lay still, please don't stir
Let me be born in your embrace

Speak to me in your ...

Read the full of Come Back!

Air In You

Laying awake at night
Your hand resting on my skin
Your breath fanning on my face
Savoring your being
Inhaling a pocket of air
That has been in you
My eyes sting as
An emptiness spread within
As I glimpse a life without you
