Read Poem: Isolation, by Shameda Saffee 

And I will tell you

I would rather
Breathe in
The scent of your body
From brow to toe
All of you.
Life in me.

With emojis
Our emotions
In and out of sync with time zones

And I will tell you
How I long to feel
A heartbeat.
A Voice.
A Footstep.
Presence belonging to you.

Isolation is a teasing terror
Beyond darkness.

Starlight surrounds a full moon
She reveals herself
In a spacious sky
To her companion.
Evening star is
Always by her side.

Beyond my hemisphere
Your sunset is
My sunrise.

The other side of midnight
Stretches endlessly into no other view.

And I will tell you
To rise up
From bended knees

Beyond imagination
Where silence
Speaks louder
Than words

Rise up.
Everybody falls
