    I have been trying to
    fathom the moments
    when tranquility
    left my home

    And all it manifests
    is your absence
    but my heart is
    a weak child

    My lips hum strains
    unsung but the
    wounds are deep
    and poetry won’t heal

    I have been smiling
    at the rhythm of
    your laughter and
    the peace is priceless

    You are way too far
    and I am devoid of hugs
    so instead, I wait for
    the warmth

    I wait for the air,
    and it brings me your
    scents and until we meet,
    I am soothed with this.
