Wish You Here

by CJ Maleney   Mar 8, 2018


I never realised I was desolate
Never thought I felt alone
I was not aware that I was lost
For I had maps and navigation on my phone

I never thought of loneliness
Ha! Thats for other folk?
Head strong and unthinking
I ploughed on down that lonely road

Yet every night I would speak to you
For I longed to hear your voice
I never thought about it much
I guess it was a Subconscious choice

As I travel through this island nation
There is a thing I've come to know
Though I wish that you were here
I wish more that I was home

    Judging Comment - Wish You Here by CJ Maleney points 7 - This piece really touched me deep in the soul and heart because it shows that Craig albeit a strong man has feelings that stir deep within him that he is not afraid to show like some men are.Yes it can be a lonely lonely world without the one you love by your side but having their love anyway makes the loneliness less lonely if that makes any sense. I for one have witnessed long distance relationships first hand (me) and second hand (friends) and you have to work at these kinds of relations to have something long term.

    Judging comments:
    I love how Craig’s poem expresses how has almost stumbled upon this discovery of an unexpected emotion that he previously felt immune to. The exploration of this through the poem is very touching and the longing to be home when it's not possible is something everyone can relate to. An emotional journey related through smooth rhyme. :-) x
