Exceptional
This work has reached the exceptional level
Well JLR there is an old saying that absence makes the hear grow fonder.
Now I ask you is that true. I see you're counting seconds, something is going on in the missing department. I loved reading your piece, it was a good read. Now there is a question I have about the last line. Is that suppose to say "for me to do the same!" I didn't get it.

Well written and well paced piece. I enjoyed the flow and the picture of a feeling of expectation expressed therein. Hopefully you will be with him again and sooner. Could you check the last line; seems something is missing there as a typo error! Thanks for sharing your thoughts.

This is a very unique way of writing a free form poem. I enjoyed it and could follow the content through which most of the free form poems leave me hanging. Thank you for sharing, and I hope this is fiction and not based on a true event. If it is it comes from the heart. Good job.

You bring out well how difficult it is to be away from the beloved. I liked your descriptive imagery, your visuals, the passion of these lines:

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Day five, by midday I felt withdrawn.

Especially impressive is counting seconds that are in a week that you were apart:

But, it's been a week today...
604,800 seconds, what a shame.

Very well done.

One who is always with you or near you, it becomes hard to pass a moment in his or her absence, so togetherness is living alive; well said, well done, thanks for sharing this. ALCREATOR

A touching poem about how you miss your mate. The emotions and the sense of impatience come through strongly, as does the shock at the news she will be away for another week!

Time to start counting down those seconds all over again.

It is difficult dealing with the absence of someone who is constantly there with us and the heart bleeds when they leave and you opened your heart here to us and we felt those feelings of sorrow and yearning, much enjoyed, love Dolly x

    Thank you, Dolly! Lifelong unions do create a rhythm that is disrupted when a partner is required to be away.
