Not Going to Be Here ~ In 50 Words

I just wish I could hold onto you

but I can’t

So I find myself staring blankly at nothing for a couple minutes

simply thinking about you

I’ve come to terms that you are leaving,

but not yet that you are not going to be here

I miss you already

The World a Bit Brighter

I had a pretty great day today

and yet I feel sad

and I don’t know why.

I miss you

but I don’t know what “you” are

I can’t describe you

I can’t describe your face

I can’t describe how you make me laugh

I can’t describe how the world looks a bit brighter with you

But I know that you make me happy

and I know that I miss you

I don’t know who you are

I don’t know where you went

I don’t know why I miss you

but I do.

I hope that you are having a nice time wherever you are

I hope that the sun shines during the day

I hope that the stars twinkle at night

I hope the birds sing in the morning

I hope the crickets chirp at night

I hope that you are surrounded by friends

I hope that you have the company of family

I hope that you laugh and smile

I hope that the world looks a bit brighter for you.

Can We Just Stop Life?

How can I miss you

How can I miss you when you are only two feet away?

How can I miss you when you never left

and neither did I

I spend most of my waking hours with you

yet I miss you

I miss your laugh

I miss your pleasant sighs

I miss watching your hand swim across a page while you are writing

I miss watching your eyes dance across a page while you are reading

I miss knowing exactly how you interlace your fingers

I miss knowing exactly how you bob your hand to music

I miss you

and yet I see you everyday

nothing between us changed

there was no fight

there was no outside tragedy

there was no one added to the equation

well except that invited guest called

Life

and Responsibility

and Growing Up.

I now know how I can miss you

because even when you are two feet away from me

my mind and I can be millions of miles away.

So can we just pause Life?

So can we just put Responsibility on hold?

So can we just tell Growing Up to take a chill pill?

So can we reign in our minds

And stop missing each other

and start finding each other?


“I have found that no exertion of the legs can bring two minds much nearer to one another.”

-Henry David Thoreau
