Poetry & Art

What happens to your body when you’re not with the one you love

Where is the sunrise and kiss-filled bliss,

The muscular tubes of our bodies pretzeled?

My fingertips buzz, unable to dance little flowers on your spine. 

My skin has become a timeless tundra,

As I long to feel warm breath circling on my neck. 

My voice wavers, unsteady without your ears to travel through. 

My legs ache with the want to walk to you 

and the corner of my lips point downwards as if 

To apologize to my heart.

I’m currently a student at James Madison University studying hospitality management, business, and creative writing. I enjoy writing poetry most, but I also love writing nonfiction and fiction short stories.
