Missing You

Missing You

Under the night stars
I lay awake searching
the black, flickering sky
The answers are out there
somewhere hidden
Only seen in my mind’s eye
 
Sleep does not come easy
My head is full
of crazy notions
Are you looking at the same
cloudless canopy
feeling the same emotions?
 
Why are we still separated?
So much time has passed
since we were together
We always vowed
Never to be apart
No matter the weather
 
My love, I call out to you
in the darkness
Please come back to me 
I am incomplete
without you
There is no ‘I’ in ‘we’

    I like being immersed into this poem…into the feeling of being bereft and searching for my loved one…wondering why we are separated. I especially like these two descriptive words “cloudless canopy”….that is indeed a very dark sky.
    The last three lines are the penultimate in lonliness for the writer (and thus the reader).
    Well done.

    Nice line: “No matter the weather” It is amazing how we cannot anticipate what the weather might be.

      So true. You’re either 50% right or 50% wrong! 🙂

    “There is no I in WE” … a great line, but if we lost our I, will WE stay happy long? Something to ponder. ( I’ve always been somewhat suspicious of those wedding ceremonies where the bride and groom each take their lighted candle and light one large one, then snuff out their own.)

      Yes exactly! In my poem, perhaps that’s why they’re apart. You cannot lose your independence even in a marriage or relationship. Thanks Bev🙂💕

    With too much “I” there is never a “we”

      That’s right!

    Heartache often comes round when there is no WE to be found.

    Loneliness is indeed a cry in the dark. (K)
