Blind Waiting

I guess
he’s
waiting
til we
become like
an old
married
couple —
that
way
when I
stroke
his
forehead
chestnipples
neck and lips
it will be like
a warm
blanket
lulling
us both
to
sleep.

I pen poetry about love and loss, what I observe and experience — I write about hope. My writing has been described as resiliently defiant.
