Parting Shot

Thursday 6th January 2011, A. Palmer


In solitary moments,
spare a thought for me,
as I will you.
Or two or three.

They might look better,
talk wiser, write lists.
I can live with that,
just promise

you won’t pour the same
dreams into their pillows.

  3. Thank you both so much, this poem started with that line actually.

  4. Enjoyed the delayed affirmation in "just promise you won't..." Seems we all desperately want to be the only one that is privy to our lover's most intimate dreams and wishes. Yet somehow we find that we are one of a few more, desperately wanting the same thing. Very well done indeed :)
