Hey Lou Writes

The Grey Matters

Why Don’t You


poetry, writing, farming, chickens, melinda

Kate Burn Photography

When you get a chance

Just let me know when

Just let me know when

And I’ll come for you

I’ll listen

At any distance

Let down the resistance


I’m right here

     Like this

Like this, too

Not the memory or the song

Not the trying to get along


Patience is my name

What else could I do?

But wait

For the calm in my heart

For the time spent apart


The sacred hours, dark

The light I never wanted to come

It came… it rose…like that

Too soon

Too fast

To last

  1. I love the rhyme scheme! It hits you at the end of the stanza and really flows well. I noticed there was little punctuation. Now you just need to go all ee cummings on this thing and lowercase everything ;)

  2. Love the poem. Love the new picture. Love YOU!
