The Solace

Written By: Anachan

This was written while I was in college, still doing freestyle poetry. I have actually used this in my sophomore English class, without telling them the author, asking them to find an example of a simile and personification within the poem.

The Solace, by Anneliese Kvamme

When I cry,
    the night enfolds me
         like a lover,
        quietly caressing
            until I sleep

      Then wipes the tears from
           my eyes.
