my pillow waits for you

my pillow waits for you

forlorn shadows
hang like colorless tapestries
on barren walls
that reverberate no sound

a frame with no photo
rests on a dresser
resembling a weary wanderer
desperate for a smile

beyond my world
entwined lovers
mutate into carnal wolves
howling at the moon

a baby weeps
tears of forget me nots
in a world eclipsed
my pillow waits for you

  2. Drew- This is one of your best. I feel you wrote this from a deep place in your soul. There is a strong sense of desolation and erosion here. Those dark intense emotions we try to keep from bringing out into the light but that haunt us nonetheless. Beautiful!

      1. Best of Luck on your search for a little piece of paradise in the Sunshine state. I was astonished at how large a state it actually is.
        I’m much more south than I would have liked but found that the east coast was a lot more peaceful and south was less inhabited. I guess I like isolation. LOL Being an art enthusiast took me to a wonderful place called Sarasota. Truly beautiful but unfordable. I chose 30 minutes south to a place of great tranquility. The search is always fun if there’s no time frame involved. No worries about responding right away. I know I fall in that category many, many times. Have a great time while searching Drew. Your welcome on the compliment on your writing. It’s always outstanding.
        Isadora 😎

          1. Hola Drew …
            I’ve been on a roller coaster ride I never expected to take. I plan on posting about it. I’m fine just totally exhausted from the stress. But, such is life. Up’s and down’s on our journey is what teaches us to be more resislient. Hope you have a fabulous and peaceful week …. Isadora 😎
