the nearness of you

i hang up the phone
and snuggle down
in the single bed
i currently occupy
at my mothers house

closing my eyes
i wander through
our conversation
i love you i miss you
i cant wait to be with you
and i remember something
i should have told you

sleepily i roll over
to murmur one last
i love you
before sleep
only to find myself
talking to walls
despite the nearness
of you

  Miss you Jd...

Sometimes I have trouble commenting on your work. It seems to speak for itself- this does. I like the reality of dreams it speaks to, very real. very succinct tight write.

I like the lack of punctuation. I don't have a reason, just do, the line breaks punctuate for you and that works for me

  You poetry is like Twitter ought to be! Long or short, the verse shows moments in a life. Very vividly. I like your verse-form and style of language (quite direct) so much that I want to talk about it, but that would be no use because you know exactly what you are doing anyway!

  i find this piece so lovely and a sad. lovely b/c of the passion and the longing- sad b/c there is distance. but under it all i sense hope. for love conquers all. you will have the nearness and oneness you desire. you will fight and travel. sacrifice and dream.

overall, i really love this write. God bless you.

  soon you will no longer be talking to walls. soon you will not worry about the things that you forgot to say, once you have said your goodnights. soon! that is a wonderful word. good luck to you both and may soon come very quickly for you. j

  Aw, this is lovely: far away, so close. I sadly know that feeling too well. I suppose I should say SOMETHING constructive.

i hang up the phone
and snuggle down
in the single bed
i currently occupy
at my mothers house

closing my eyes
i wander through
our conversation
i love you i miss you
i cant wait to be with you
and i remember something

You missed the apostrophe in mother's, and perhaps there are too many I's in this. For instance, you could say: "I love you and miss you/can't wait to be with you" (eliminating at least one I).

  yes, those long distance relationships can be so tough...

i was in a couple of was for two years with a girl who lived in poland and was an exchange student here at southern.

we got together and then she went back home...6 months later she came back for 6 weeks...but then the next separation did us in...and i mean we were so in love..most romantic relationship i ever was in...when we were apart the letters were every day almost...on both sides...and the last time we were together, we made love then i took her to the airport..not knowing that was the last i would see her...

just a tough two seem to be holding it together...must be a great love...

  This piece is at once simple and complex....The simplicity of the imagery as the poem starts out is nicely contrasted with the unexpectedness of how the piece ends.

A lot like love...simple yet complex too.....

Good write!

  if only i had remembered to tell you when you were here...

the walls are sad that i neglected to say it then...

it's a pretty straightforward love poem...but there is emotion...

and as saartha said..the change in the last four lines works well..

  I think this is one of the better NaPoWriMo poems you've posted this month. I'm not too big on romance, so it's been difficult for me to appreciate your theme, but this one is nice.

The middle stanza can be pretty much taken out in its entirety, though, except maybe the last two lines of that stanza.

It's the very last four lines that make the poem. The contrast there is lovely!
