100 Days – poetry

I read a piece that Aisling Weaver wrote and was inspired to write a bit of poetry.  I haven’t done so in quite a while and it shows, but in getting ready for #nanowrimo I am spending my 10 minute breaks on various writing exercises (most of which are character sketches and outlines for my nanowrimo novel) but I felt like being a bit creative.

Hope you enjoy.

————————————————————————————-

It’s been a hundred days since June.
My lips still ache with the memory of your tongue
A hundred times the sun has fallen from the sky
Into the grasping arms of darkness
Like you fell into my bed on that day in June
As the night loses the sun my hold slipped
Each shadow is a weak reminder of that night
Every breath is an echo of you
It’s been a hundred days since June.
