Desperate for You

by Meena Krish   Feb 10, 2014

Desperate for your arms,
where I can curl like a kitten
not knowing winter storms,
and for a while, just for a while
forget the outside world,

Desperate for your touch,
to melt those raging nights
which have taken much
of my strength and for a while
just for a while leave the hurt behind,

Desperate for your whispers,
for my ears to sleep on tenderness,
release my heart from an air tight container
and for a while, just for a while
scream my pain aside,

so desperate I am for you,
and for a while, just for a while
I really need you...
need you

    Sighs..... Meena, Meena, Meena!!
    This is a teary eyed poem, leaving me in a puddle of emotions.
    I adore this poem, it touches every reader in some way. We have all felt this moment of sorrow, when we truly yearn for the one we love, or have lost or crave to have in our life.
    It's simplistic elegance and topped with a very creative and elegant ending left me speechless!

    Very touching poem here by Meena!!

    You really amaze me, for a while, and just for awhile you leave me without words to explain my feelings

    This write warms my heart and the words are so softly. It reminds me of a kitten all curled up in a blanket and the outside world does not matter.

    I can relate to this one a lot, to be desperate for that person who comforts you, and that you know will make all your pain ease just for a while.

    I liked the way you repeated certain things throughout the poem, this worked well in this case and was not over done.

    Well done.

    Meena I agree with Lucero I liked the repeating lines as well. They work well to enhance the message of this poem. This really is different from your other one's. I love here how you made the character "helpless" it makes the reader connect more because you did a great job showing the sadness they feel. You miss this person a lot. It seems like someone you loved dearly. The wording brings a softness to the poem because it's loving overall. The love the people have for each other is wonderful. I liked the last stanza because you need them but they are away now. Overall this is a beautiful and sad write.
