A Melody, A Memory

Poem Commentary

I like this one. I wrote it for my boyfriend.

A Melody, A Memory

His whispers,

Soft like a spider’s underbelly.

His touch,

That enters my heart and leaves out my spine.

Rib cages expand lightly,

Under the dim light of a sheet-covered window.

Eye lashes flutter against the pillows,

Like dusted moth wings.

He grips my very soul,

And hums lullabies with the beating of his heart.

Metal springs meet the ovals at the tips of our fingers,

As we explore the top bunk.

The light in his eyes shines the brightest

In the dimmest of times.

Healing hands around a mangled heart.

He fixes me with barbed wire

And stitches of comfort.

As we lay in the melody

Of one another's memories

Thank you for reading. It means a lot to me to know that there are people out there enjoying my work. Gives me a reason to keep writing. :)

Poetry is what is lost in translation.
