Weekly Prompt Angst or Longing

My contribution to this week’s Community Storyboard prompt. What are you contributing?

Etheree

My first attempt at this poetry style. It sounds easier than it was (at least for me)

Love

I
Love you
More than life.
Nothing can change
How you make me feel
When you whisper my name.
Nibble my ear lobes and neck,
Make me giggle with your soft touch.
Caress my body and I’ll be yours.
I will love you forever and ever.

Opinions Welcomed and Two More Tanka

Here is my last Tanka – I’m going to enter one in the poetry contest over at wePoets Show It

Now, I just need to decide which one to enter. I’d love your opinions. Here are the ones I wrote this week.
ESSENCE OF LOVE
GRACE
BURST OF COLOR
MISSING YOU
and two new ones:

LIFE IS A GAME

Roll the die, your turn
Chess pieces that move ’round town
Charades and Go Fish
Monopoly, Truth or Dare
You think life is a big game

DON’T LEAVE

Why did you leave me
You’ll realize your mistake
Some day you’ll be back
I don’t know if I should wait
But I don’t know where I’d go

Missing You

Missing You

Sadness fills my soul
Melancholy invades me
Loneliness takes hold
Can I ever love again
As grief becomes my best friend
