Without You

Your arms around me,
Your lips against mine.
I hold you close
And don't let go.
I smile and you kiss me again.
I never want this moment to end.
My eyes are closed as I refuse to leave this behind.
Then, I'm forced to open my eyes.
And realize that I'm holding air,
Not you.
I realize I'm not kissing you,
That I'm not kissing anyone.
I cry as I realize the truth:
I'm here alone.
I'm here without you.

This is a good poem; I like it! I think the only way you could make it better is by being more descriptive and using higher vocabulary.

 

Good job! :)

Yeah, I will admit: poems are definitely not my forte. Which is ironic seeing as most of the things I've posted on TI are poems.
