It’s Been a While

Prompt By “Dead Poets Live” — And That is Life

It’s been a while since you leaned (mid sleep) to touch, to make sure I was near. Feet on feet or hand in hand, I can’t feel you here.

It’s been a while since we laughed in sync, bellies sore with smiles, my tears they fall in silent bouts, I let them flow for miles.
