Having...Text! - Poem by Dónall Dempsey

I gaze at

my mobile

loving the last

you sent

seeing as that’s all I can have of you
for the present.

The train eager
to bring me closer to

your nearness

our kiss now only
a mere half hour away.

    Reading this I was thinking about messaging in verses. Short mobile poems. Haiku for mobile. Lovely little poem, I like it. I wonder if the text you gazed was in verse :) ? (Report)Reply

    Yes, those messages that have to stand in for us when we are apart... I don't know how we survived without mobiles back in the Dark Ages. You've said it in a very few words as usual. You're very good at text too, my love... (Report)Reply
