We Miss You






 We Miss You

waking up to the reality of dawn
the cupboard echoing my thoughts
we miss you
even your clothes-hanger
looks forlorn and lost

I scrunch my eyes together
trying to kid myself that its all a dream
your smell lingers
and my dreams
are scattered all over the floor

I take the hanger and twist it
much like you did with my heart
we need you
but we wont lie adrift
we will be reshaped and reborn

Oh, my.

Beautiful.

You have such a strong, good, evocative, wise voice. SO glad to see it being expressed again. Write more. Write more. Write more.

:) Mwah.

Oh, that's sounding very sad.
Sounds like someone old has gone. Your poems always make me cry. And I have to get breakfast ready.
