Talking in Bed

Written by: Philip Larkin | Biography
 | Quotes (80) |
Talking in bed ought ot be easiest 
Lying together there goes back so far 
An emblem of two people being honest.

Yet more and more time passes silently.
Outside the wind's incomplete unrest
builds and disperses clouds about the sky.

And dark towns heap up on the horizon.
None of this cares for us. Nothing shows why
At this unique distance from isolation

It becomes still more difficult to find
Words at once true and kind 
Or ont untrue and not unkind.

1964
