Email Poem | Today's Poetry

 The Need To Be
You wake alone, cold sweat the nights
Are the wet kisses missed by your soul

Savor the moments had and crave for more
but the desert platter sits empty
upon their pillow

Toss and turn reaching out to an empty side
Once a warm place, where rendezvous's were
the highlight of your day more so too nights

Embrace or should I say brace yourself
They're gone and they've taken your purpose
Closest thing to them is their scent
on sheets, perfumed impression in the air

The Butterflies once felt have left what you
held special in your heart and your soul wanders
lost today, and just maybe forever

To belong to someone is the need to be this day

Prisoners of love need a reprieve
Maybe yours will come today
Oh how you wished for so long to be free, to be loved

A crushed heart has no value and trade ins are far
and few between and may never be, the need to be

empty bed Pictures, Images and Photos
