This, I’ve come to love

This is typically what a blog day for me looks like. Pen to paper (while snacking on something lol) before I proceed to type it and then schedule for posting!! I know! I know!! I’m basically doing the same thing twice, but I do love the feel of paper.

Todays poem I feel falls under an Aubade. I spent an awful lot of time during the week reading Aubades written by different poets. A few of my favourites are Leave-Taking by Louise Logan and Aubade by David Mura.

I hope you enjoy mine.

This

This I’ve come to love
My longing to hear your voice
Every night
Something familiar
A pleasurable routine

And now I puzzle
Wonder what I feared before
The familiarity?

This I’ve come to love
Steady paces
Calm conversations
An unending comfort

The sudden realisation
Of what has always been
Memories
Laying itself upon itself

This I’ve come to love
Reconnecting
Regrowing
Reincarnating

But still
I love
This complexity
Embedded
In an unknown simplicity
Hidden behind a little fear
Fear of clarity

Words have more meaning
Songs more depth
Me still a bit better
Self longing
Self loathing

Yet
This I’ve come to love
Unsteady heart beats
Forgiveness
Time
Distance
Still closeness looms
In a good
Aloof
But satisfying way

This
This

Unspoken words
Of a mending heart
Needing
Wanting
And seeking tranquility

But this
I’ve come to love
Words
Straight from the heart
Pure
Unfiltered
Raw
All filled
With beautiful
And still
Pictures
Of you
