I Wanted To Tell You

I wanted to tell you how,
early this morning

 lying against you.
 a great wave of gentleness

swept all my old wars
clean, leaving me here with 

your body washed up in sleep
on the pillow beside me.

I'm here, home,
and empty of all but your deep

silence humming within me
I wanted to tell you

I love you.

    Dear Audrey, Welcome to PS! This is truly beautiful. I was shocked on Monday to find another Audrey Carey had joined soup! I panicked and thought that someone was playing a prank. I'm sorry if I said anything to offend you. It was a misunderstanding. I've since changed my name so there will not be any confusion. Again, welcome to PS and I hope you will enjoy it here. Have a very nice day!Always, Annalise formerly Audrey Carey
