without someone

Standard

The World Is Not a Pleasant Place to Be
Nikki Giovanni
The world is not a pleasant place
to be without
someone to hold and be held by.

A river would stop
its flow if only
a stream were there
to receive it.

An ocean would never laugh
if clouds weren’t there
to kiss her tears.

The world is
not a pleasant place to be without
someone.
