Longing #Poetry


I’ve watched this sky everyday
Hoping it’ll show me these colours
Once again
This confluence of aquamarine and baby pink
That merge almost effortlessly
Yet stay apart, distinctly.

I watch this sky today
And miss you every moment of every waking day
I long to sit by you
Pour out my heart
Watch as you listen
And lift me up
Like the sky that bears
The gentle pink clouds.

I will watch this sky everyday
And with all my soul, pray
That the Universe will bring you back
And let us be together
Inseparable, come what may.

Anything you want- #FridayFictioneers

¬†So, we’re here, finally! Aren’t you excited?

Greg threw the gear shift into neutral and looked expectantly over at Louise.

Her thinly pursed lips made him nervous. Eagerly, he swung his legs out of the car and dashed around to her door, yanking it open. Come on, darling. It’s your dream destination. We can buy whatever you want. Name it and it’s yours.

Really, Dad? said Louise, her face breaking into a bittersweet smile.

Absolutely! exclaimed Greg.

Well, I doubt that.

Pshaw! I promise.

Fine. I want the last 14 years back. Right from the moment you left us behind.
