A poem a day for a year # 183

by Amy Turn Sharp


I've never been able to write a poem that says it better than the 10,000 Maniac's song Trouble Me does. It just fits on the shoulder of humanity. It makes you feel like you are sitting in a familiar spot with a warm blanket. The leg of a friend touching your own leg. With sadness that you scoop out of the air and drink like water. With people to kiss you goodnight.
