Getting lost is not a waste of time

your side of the bed~ lai poetry

your side of the bed
pillow’s still depressed
the smell of your head
could change what you said
as you sadly left
the sweet life we led

Mindfills for…

    • You’re right! This poetry form is snappy 🙂
      Something in the poem made you send this comment and I am so grateful to you.
