If only you would

October 1, 2007
By Lauren Romine, Dresden, OH

If only you would
Come back
On this lonliest of days.
I would run to the sea
Naked and pure
As the clean blue sky
And catch every fish.
Use my hands
To fan the flames.
Make you a soup
So heavy and thick
You'll be too full
To every leave me
Again.
If only you would
Come back
On this lonliest of days.
