a poem by Grace Brown

i haven’t written for you in a while

and i sadly wonder why


maybe putting my feelings into words

doesn’t seem to satisfy


i’d rather whisper in your ear

and talk in between a kiss


why is it so hard to long for someone

you’ve never had to miss


in this pleasant dark abyss.


at night i’ll close my eyes and imagine

you are lying next to me


my head on your chest

and your hand on my crest


as i watch you gently sleep


then i open my eyes

and you’re gone from my sight


please watch as these dead roses bloom


beauty is in the eyes of the beholder

i know i’ll be holding you soon.
