I’m the one she still accepts
I’m the one that leaves a trail behind
of my unwashed underwear,
I’m the footsteps leading to our bed
She loves my faults, and almost never
says a word about deficiencies
She’s the one that leaves a void
when she’s away on business trips
I’m the one who dreams of words
that I can capture from within
I’m the one who wants to aid, and
carry her through stormy seas
to shores, through reefs to that lagoon
where, in the early early dawn,
I will watch her waking from her sleep
I will kiss her gently – say how much I care
That day we’ll lay and watch the clouds
chasing wisps of morning mist away
together we will sip a glass of sunshine
and feed each other buttered toast
Today Marina Sofia host the dVerse Poetics and she inspires us with Bhanu Kapil Rider ‘The Vertical Interrogation of Strangers’ and ask us to write poetry from 4 questions.
Who are you and whom do you love?
What else are you, that no one has seen before?
Describe a morning you woke without fear.
How will you know when you get there?
Just a swift and honest response, which I have tried to give
