Pillow-My Other Half



Pillow-My Other Half

Oh my precious slumber—where have you gone
Come by the side of my pillow, for now I’m alone
Nobody is lying near—to kiss my eyes close,
Caress my forehead, tweak my crinkling nose,
And tuck those loose brown locks behind my ear
To stare into my dozy eyes and glance at my fear
Fear in hazel night-eyes change into watery haze
Drops of water, illusion of deep drowning maze
Skimming my wet cheeks, as maze breaks loose
For soon are unfastened—those knotted noose
You would always slid your hand around my waist,
Skim my blushing cheeks, lying on your warm chest
Bygone are those nights, a dreamy dream evolves
Love is lost; touch shadows, and warmth dissolves
For honeyed cotton-eyed pillow is my only soul-mate
Icy-lone goodnight kiss sneak to nocturnal eyes, of late!

  1. Caress my forehead, tweak my crinkling nose,
    And tuck those loose brown locks behind my ear...love the gentle intimacy in this...the just being with...there is a safety and comfort in being so open with that one...smiles.

  2. Sorry ... I can't comment on this one ... this left me speechless. One of the best poems I have ever read in my life. I don't think I can say anything more at the moment. The feelings in the world have seeped deep within me.

  6. Sisters don’t need words. They have perfected a language of snarls and smiles and frowns and winks – expressions of shocked surprise and incredulity and disbelief. Sniffs and snorts and gasps and sighs – that can undermine any tale you’re telling.
