and here I am
inside this vast space
of the unknown
watching the stars
shine so brightly
each and every night
within the darkness
hoping you’ll find
your way to me
even if only
Only in dreams
and here I am
What a beautiful poem Jennifer! Superbly written!
Thank you so very much Dominic! I’m so glad you enjoyed it!
My pleasure Jennifer!
I read this thrice, deliberate. Lovely 💕
Hey Dalton! Thank you so much, so nice to see you!
You’re quite welcome! And you also. I’ve been busy…contemplative…and walking my pooch. You seem well 🙂
I am well. I hope being contemplative has been going good for you. I know sometimes that can be challenging. 🙂
Haha. At times, however, it is a comfortable place of delight.
I’m glad it is 🙂
There is a lot to be said for simplicity in messages. I don’t begrudge those who code their poetry more, as long as they are willing to explain it. I am no fan of stuck-up poets who sneer at someone for writing simple messages. Poetry isn’t a matter of one way and only one way, but diversity. I love diversity in poetry. This has a very universal message. Great work.
Thank you so very much for your wonderful and very thoughtful comment. I love the diversity in poetry and to take it further, I love the diversity in life in general. I truly appreciate your comment and your work!
I take Visa/Mastercard and pocket lint. Your choice. In all seriousness I like your poem. And thank you too.
I probably do have some lint in my pocket 😄
and, you’re so very welcome too!
Have I told you lately how much I love, love your poems/words??? I do!!
Bellissimo, Sweet Poet, Bellissimo!!!
Hmmm, maybe once or twice 😊 Thank you, dear poet! 💕🌹
Oh My, I will try and not be so forgetful in the future! 😍
haha yes indeed!
The longing in this poem feels so intense and familiar. Lovely writing.
Thank you, this was an intense writing for me
