Daily missive breaks into the weekend for Saturday the 6th of October.~by Peter Forster


 

 

Daily missive breaks into the weekend for Saturday the 6th of October.

To hear those words
Falling from your lips
The sound they made
The tumble
Of laughter
When I caught your eye
In the mirror
Sharing a basin
Cleaning our teeth in unison
Playing bumps-a-daisy
In the nude
Nobody had ever
Seen me that way
Nobody ever will
When you called
Your voice drifting
From another room
On the phone
Next to me in bed
A tinkle of fine crystal
From a nightcap
Now even that is
Too much like broken glass
The murmur
Of a mountain stream
The pop of a champagne cork
A goodnight kiss
Sleepy pillow talk
Your gentle breathing
The warm softness
Of your body
Next to mine
Waking up alone
Is not the same
But there is something
Of you
In these broken fragments
The torn filaments
Of our lives
Not enough to forget
What it means
To remember
But enough to remind me
How wonderful it would be
To hear you say my name
One more time.
