Original Poetry - The Care Package

The Care Package
The day after
they lost four
in a bloody battle
and a road side bomb
care packages
left unopened
Jim got cookies
Dave got CDs
Sandy got stationary
Eric’s contained one picture
a sonogram of
his first child
who will never know his father.

pressing her against the wall
she turns her head
exposing her throat to him
he leans close and breathes her in
their hearts beat in rhythm
as he tastes her skin
she pulls him closer and whimpers
too long has it been
