Written for: Poetic Asides April 2016 Challenge – Day 4
Write a distance poem.
Far from those people
you have loved all your life,
one month can seem like a year.
When rain teems and weather is drear,
you find your thoughts are rife
with melancholy longings
for shared times of fun.
Both your parents are gone;
you feel like a lonely fawn
in a forest awaiting dawn.
