Small Worlds

Post by Matty11 » Sun Aug 02, 2020 1:13 pm

The cosy rooms do not become timeless,
removing clocks is just a childish gesture,
but being carefree frames our happiness.

And sharing space - a spicy spaghetti
in bed, a bubbly bath - both knowing closure
adds up in maths. And cuddling on the settee,

our telly habitat a diet of repeats,
a brimming glass of wine, no half-life measure:
this happiness no careless cough defeats.

Nice images.  Sounds like an old school poem.  Over my head... about a relationship?

Thanks P.

Yes, relations between those that matter as opposed to that insistent world of voices that say they matter more or as much.
