Happy Lock-Up

Sevenling (she enables my)

She enables my solitary confinement
endorses my sleeping past noon
lets me lock myself away.

But I always seek her out; always
offer to share the couch, beg her
to listen to my latest love song.

She’s my favorite life sentence.

  1. Ah, these words must be sweet to the ears of the one for whom they are intended. (I think they’re pretty sweet too.)

  2. Sweet. I relate and love the ending that ends with period for that beloved sentence.

  3. This is soo romantic 😀 I guess if we are to spend the lockdown stuck with someone it’s better to be with one we love!
