Gentle

I am sat up in bed shedding tears you’ll never see,Because you happen to be 27 miles away from me,Crying tears, Because in a moment where I should have chosen vulnerability,I chose fear,I bottled it, because I don’t want you to worry,Mostly, because I don’t know why I feel this way, Not sure why streams…

Favourite Part

I love laying on your chest,So expansive and steady,Wrapped in your enveloping arms,My thoughts still,I walk my finger down your chest to my favourite part of you,The curve of your back,My hand fits there perfectly,Tracing circles,I drift and all my thoughts melt away,I kiss your shoulder,Land my finger into your belly button,Surrounded,Your leg pins me…

Deep Gut

For the first time, I got this feeling,A sudden realization that I love you,I felt the ground beneath me move,Realign,Like all of my lenses were in sharp focus,A punch in the gut,Gasping for air,The love that will hurt, You have so quickly been wrapped into my world,I can no longer see it without you,I can…

You read the texts that say that you should be comfortable being alone,Yet that doesn’t stop your feelings of loneliness, Can I miss you?To sniff the air that remains upon your leaving?Replaying our conversations, rolling and dissecting them in my mind.Am I allowed to miss your presence?Don’t fill your void with someone, they say,But, how…

Oh Motherhood!

Oh Motherhood,Such a simple, three syllable word, Yet, it holds such weight,An anchor,Not only the weight of childbirth,But the communal weight of child rearing,The countless women and men who do a parent’s job,The aunts, uncles, grandparents, whether by blood or proximity,All of the grit,Without all of the physical link,The teachings they provide, The valuable lessons…

Closet

I look forward to the day when you no longer hang your coat on the chair, To it hanging proudly and confirmed in the closet. Our closet. I look forward to the day, I no longer have to wonder when we’ll see each other,To being safe in the knowledge that your face will greet me…

Love Teaches

Love teaches you so much about yourself,It mirrors some of the deep feelings you thought buried,It forces you to come face to face with your moments of weaknessThe times you need a little more tenderness Love teaches you to let go and let someone in To give love if you want to receive love, Love…

Water

I delay stepping into the shower, all because I don’t want to wash you off of my skin, Your lingering smell, light touches and soft kisses,The bite mark on my neck and the trace of your fingers around my collarbone, As the water runs down my back, I think of your fingers that only just…

Needed Someone

I always thought I needed someone to make me happy,I always thought I needed to find love and it would all fall into place,I always thought I needed to keep my emotions in check in order to hide that unhappiness,I always thought I needed to be everything my partner wanted,I always thought I needed to…
