Your arms around me!

To be held in your arms,
To breathe in your solace,
Not a drop of peace,

Beyond the wake
Of the reddened sky
The looming horizon
Breathes in
The dusky air.
I know still
Your head
Rests over mine.
Your consoling words
Pouring honey dew
In my frightened ears,


"No matter
How far the ragging thoughts
Torment you, my love...
I am right here..
Holding you close...
In my arms."

such simplicity :)



Nice one as always Shreya! :)

Just one suggestion,

I feel the word "ragged" would sound much more intense instead of "ragging".. with the context of the poem.

Loved it!
