Second poem in two days. It’s a start.

The prompt for the National Poetry Writing Month today asked for a poem that is a lie. Here’s my variation on the theme. 

The Lie

 

 I saw you yesterday

Watching from the window

I wondered what you wondered

As you gazed so intently at the water

 

I waited for you last night

Waited for you to leave your world and enter mine

Wondered if you wondered about me

As you dreamed

 

I thought about you this morning

Thought about the way you looked

The scent of your hair, the touch of your skin

As you awoke

 

I worried about you today

Worried about what you were thinking

The fire in your eyes, not squelched by the tears

As you came upon us
