Missing you…


I just spent two long hours
Pouring out how I feel
Then deleted all the words
That I wanted to conceal

I was rambling on
And nothing made sense
I feel like everything I say
Is in self-defense

I guess I’m just feeling lost
Because everyone is gone
And most don’t understand
How I’ve felt all along

And so the tears have won again
Like they sometimes do
I guess this is just what happens
When I find myself missing you

  1. I hope you aren’t offended by this comment, but there are times your poems remind me of mine. I think that is one of the things I like about you. I guess, by now, you know I love writing about love, lonelinss, and longing.

    I love this piece.

    1. That’s probably why I like yours too. Kindred spirits… 😉

      And thank you… I love writing about all the things that I can’t sometimes express in other ways. Writing soothes my soul and invigorates me.
