The Plain Sense of Things

Spread the love

the buds and leaves
echo what’s left of longing
as I lie beneath
dark and dismal night.
I wish to drown
what was once harbored
lest thoughts of you kiss
jaded lips
never have I felt you closer
yet so far from me.

    Oh, the longing is heartwarming here, with that feeling of being so close and yet so far. I loved this bit: “lest thoughts of you kiss/jaded lips”.
    Hoping that the drowning would lead to a new beginning. Something harbored has to be let go at times after all.
    A thoroughly evocative verse. <3

    A fading romance well portrayed. Really liked this, been there done that. Closeness is habit forming in a way, then one will call a stop with a hint of resuming.
    Thanks for hosting.
