Can't You Feel It?

I don’t have to see your
face or feel your touch,
hear your words whispered
softly in my ears. I don’t
have to hold your hand or
kiss your lips, cling to you
like Saran Wrap- airtight and
fresh. I don’t have to do these
things to want you; the vibes
come through the screen and
~ZAP~ I’m yours.

Can you feel my smile, my cloud nine aura? I’m so excited to announce that my tritina won 1st place in the Poetic Asides Form Challenge and it will appear in an upcoming issue of Writer’s Digest. You can see the announcement and read my poem here.
