New poem

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I am writing a series I think about my kids. This is for ds.

Being 2, part one

sweet silent eyes
blanketed in a ball of drifted sleep
cheeks warm, barely stirring
despite the gentle nudge of maternal whisperings
the luschious depth of unencumbered slumber
strewn inside the minature version of a bed
inanimate companions protecting the innocent
guarding the lively inhabitant from self imposed isolation

I curve my body around yours
struggling to balance in a space too small for adulthood
tiny arms nestled firmly around my neck
with sweet breath delighting at 6am
the blues barely peering through a shaded light
squinting into an unexpected cheerful morning expression
small kisses, my hair tangled in your babyness
the feigned snore of reluctance
begging to sleep all morning like this

Awww, that was beautiful!

Makes me really miss mine being that young. You brought back fond memories.

Very touching...thanks!

I like the way you use your words and expressions

That is well written.

I love your poem. Especially the part about space too small for adulthood. Wow, that part spoke to me on so many levels.
