Eleven forty-two

and I’m missing you

You said you’d be back between

eleven thirty and twelve o’clock

I hope you didn’t stop anywhere because it seems

The minutes are hours and I’m powerless

with longing.  I guess this means

I love you, even though now it’s

eleven fifty-two





(Actually, he came through the door at 11:47, right on schedule.  Poetic license!)  🙂

    Verse seems so easy for you.

    Love is every hour, not just the moments.

    What a coincidence. I once began a poem, “It’s eighteen minutes
    Till December ~ 🙂 (and he’s still got eight minutes)

What do you think?
