Two Poems by Catherine Noonan

Two Poems by Catherine Noonan

A Night

Tired as if about to die but
Sleep, any sleep without you rests nothing and so
I wake soundly all night
A pounding missing of you taking me into the dawn
Where I look off and see only my own misery and yet
Curse when someone interrupts my melancholy.

Safe

Indifference to you will never come from me
I must fake it, walk nonchalantly by when really
I couldn’t care more
You will always be there; felt
A sad silence or a terrible truth

And although I pray daily to be freed from loving what has ended
I am too well bonded with not letting go and it is this
That makes you never forgotten.

Author’s Bio: Catherine Noonan is an Australia-based poet.

    These are the two gems of beautifully etched out and wonderfully articulated poems that compel attention.Purely a woman's mumurations but deserve all accolades.
