Untitled 13

***Picture is one of my own***

You move in and out of my orbit

pulling me close

shutting me out

until I can see no longer.

When you are here

life is so much sweeter.

Water tastes of wine

and our mouths meet with strawberry kisses.

When you are gone

black clouds loom overhead.

Thunder shakes my heart

and the cold is piercing.

I have a want

a desire.

I have a need

a hunger that only you can sate.

I am a single hard working mom in her 40's. I have always written poetry and I love words. I live with depression and its ups downs. This is a space where I can create and write all that I need to.
