Poem: Agapi



WORDS | Claire Catacouzinos

We’re a bow
you’re one loop
I’m the other
our love tying us together.

Side by side
lying in your room
you hold my hand
trace lines on my palm
tickles ripple
like you and me.

You kiss me tenderly
in Greek you whisper
agapi mou
my love.

I close my eyes
huddle to you
your warmth
your touch
your smell
replenishes my soul.

Flick a tear away
I know
I will miss you
I will love you
until the day comes
when we draw
our last

We’re a lucky few
that get to live here.
