Writing 101 – Seconds – Sonnet – “Bearable”


 

http://www.metroimago.com

Your breath ticks by each second and I lie

beside you still,

I think of all the time we spent lying here,

And for every prayer that leaves me,

A sweet offering to keep you beside.

—–

Tomorrow we start a new count,

Can I make it through until I can be,

Close, snuggled in your side and hide my face.

On your chest and beneath your chin.

——

I’ll stay here and wait for the morning sun,

I’ll live and breathe the scent of you before,

The day takes you far from my gaze, I sigh.

A moment without you and I find that–

——

I am lost in time, in space and find,

You fill the void in the spaces,

Between my heart and veins, and thinking is —

So hard to do without that time we spend.

——

Mere seconds in memory imprint on me.

The time we share breathing as one being,

Makes the moments without you bearable.

You make our time together meaningful.

—–

You and me without each other were —

Terrible; life is made of our little–

Moments.

  1. You know, scientists are now discovering a substance inhabiting the space between all thus-far measured things. Dark matter. No one yet knows its consistency or what it’s made of. Maybe it’s made of love. Thanks for this intimate, thoughtful verse.
