Day 30 of the 30 Reblogs of November.
I’ll end this month of looking back, with what turned out to be the joint top most popular post, in terms of likes that a single posting received.
I’ve chosen this poem to end the month purely because I was surprised and delighted by the response it received first time around. A big thank you to you all for your support.
Raindrops on the roof
Sounds like faraway footsteps
When heard from beneath the sheet
Cocooned within my sanctuary
Where you left me. Spent,
With just a veneer of honesty,
A single atom wide
All that lay between us.
Our bodies entwined
Fingertips gently touching.
My lips would rest upon your neck,
With whispered promises of forever.
Then I closed my eyes
To wake alone, without you.
I’m left to rebuild the lies.
The silken thread, wound tight,
That keeps daylight out.
The day begins without you.
