Missing You


Sadness overwhelming me,

The absence of your heart…

Your smile…

Your spirit…

Threatens to surpass my will to breathe.


War wages in my heart, my mind

My soul.

Competing for top billing,

Anger, regret, grief, and guilt.


I’m guilty.


I’m bleeding out of every pore,

Screaming at the top of my lungs,

No one hears, no one sees.

Smiles that cannot reach my eyes.


Missing you is

– has always been,

My life’s career.

Can’t stop now.
