Pillow Talk Poem by JAMES ROBERTS

Pillow Talk

Rating: 3.0
 


PILLOW TALK

Talking together ought to be easy
Especially in bed
Words at once true and kind
Tenderly said
At this unique distance from isolation
It can feel like we’ve been wed
But when words are not true and not kind
It really must be said
You feel your Hearts been broken
And you you’d be better off dead +

Sounds eerily similar to talking in bed by Philip Larkin? ?
