Longing for ...

This poem by Nagore Sedano describes in a haunting, haiku-like way, the longing that comes with another’s absence—whether that absence is temporary or permanent.

Nagore Sedano

I wanna hear the echo
of my whisper in your ear,
touch the warmth of your depth
through your restless tear,
render the afterglow motion
of your straight waist,
catch the perfume of your beauty words.
