Poetry Corner – “Reunion”

Hold me close
You whisper longing
I have no words
Feels like a bombing
Where everything’s bare
The onslaught has made me impaired

Touch me lightly
You promise care
I want to fight
You’ll never be there
When loneliness gnaws
Me down, making me want to crawl

Put away your hindsight
Cover your eyesight
Then you will see me clear
