Alone with you by Joanie Sims Kercheval (birthday present poem)

Joanie Sims Kercheval shared this poem with us last April. This poem is reposted with her permission 🙂   Thank you Joanie for sharing this poem with us 🙂

————————————————————————————–

We sit a mile apart
on your couch
terrified
as we both inch closer to this fire
and stare ahead at the tv

We sit a foot apart
on your couch
electrified
as we limply resist magnetic fate
and stare down at our feet

We sit a half inch apart
on your couch
intensified
with fingers and hearts a confused twine
and stare ahead at the tv

  1. A beautiful homage to both young and late love…You want these two to close the tv, and then realize the point is the tv and how intrusive it has become in our lives. I like your 60mph poem found in Archives …March of 2013 just as much. Terrific!
