- When we are apartby JLR
Not yet exceptional. When the exceptional rating is reached this is highlighted
Togetherness becomes cozy until you are not together
When we are apart by JLR

Quiet, so very quiet,
I can hear a dozen sounds not heard before
just an hour after you went out the door.

I wasn't prepared,
your absence,
has become a chore,
for me to be creative
not to become bored.

At first, you said,
"it will be only a week
I'll be with my sister,
sure, I will miss you, mister!"

Day one, came and gone
Day two, I started thinking wrong,
Day three, I was awake before the predawn
Day four, midnight hour and I yawn,
Day five, by midday I felt withdrawn.

Today, near a week - homecoming
I sat on the stool and was humming,
when the iPhone began thrumming
thinking I'd not see a text not becoming
so raw, however, it is extremely numbing.

Tomorrow came...
Another seven days... Do you say?
But, it's been a week today...
604,800 seconds, what a shame.
Methinks, it's fair game
for me to do the same!
