Kindred - Poem by Amy Carr

Each night
we leave this place
and return to our homes
alone and,
I daresay,
lonely, save our
flickering companion,
our papers and scribbling pen.

And all I want
is to hold you
and to be held,
to have and to be
a warm body in the night,
and to somehow alleviate
the deafening silence
with the sweet
sound of breath.

    Okay, that is touching. It's a sentiment a lot of us have had and you have captured it well. Neat stuff. (Report) Reply
