The Strength Of Silk

by Ben Pickard   Aug 18, 2018

By gossamer,
she hangs -

eyes red and tired -


I have never had
more fulsome faith
in the strength of silken delicacy
than I do as I kiss
your quivering lips goodnight.

    a truly lovely poem, filled with sad times. A piece that reflects on 'strength' and how 'delicate' those times can be.
    It made me think how tiresome a situation can bear down on our souls.

    with warmth, M :)
