Poem: Learning to Live Together

I am a writer. My passion is poetry. I feel words connect people together and help us to understand the feelings we share.


Boxes piled high
extra clothes shrinking
the space
in your closet
hairbrush adorning the sink
covers pulled off in your sleep
Life is not the same.

No more simple microwave meals
extra laundry to be washed
compromising on television shows
hear snoring in my ear
Life seems peculiar to me too.

Savoring each moment
tender kisses on my forehead
your strong hands reach for mine
driving me crazy with your ways
I would not change a thing.

Ears listening to my words
loving hugs appreciate my value
learning my temperament
thoughtfully respecting my inner fears
Happily I remain.

Respecting your honor
appreciating your daily sacrifices
spoiling you with kindness
in excess of any one before
I am here for you.

Stepping stones to cross
brings closeness or division
longing with anticipation
more passion than the day before
Learning to live together.

"Living Together " by Sarah Colonna
