are the warm covers on a

winter morning with snow

and the feeling of carpet on

unsocked feet after a long day

such a comfort from one soul

to another.



are the reason I

am not talking right now

another stupid argument

over an inconsequential thing

brought me here

and to feel like a fool.



make the tear tracks

on my face turn from water

to salt and fade

from sadness to a simple

calm after a terrible storm

at sea where all I can hear i

the caterwauling wind

and the feel the spray in my eyes.

    the emotions in these poem are described in a cool way. you mention things that id never ever think to include in a poem. I like how each poem was addressed to you but the feel of each one was significantly different.
