Scattered Thoughts While You Are Afar.


Scattered thoughts while you are afar.

Like the band-aid
pulls the scab away
from all that
once was meshed
I bleed for you.

Like the bird
plucks out the worm
from his warm burrow
I am segments
torn from you 
and quickly swallowed
whole by grief.

As the sun sets,
blinds cast shadows
on the bedside
that won't hold you,
as I would if you would
rumple up those sheets,
and then enfold me.

Time has hands
but offers little
it's your hands
on me I miss,
I'm ticked off,
and cannot talk
about the abscence
of your bliss.

Parting needs a Y
so please come back
and then we'll be
partying soon,
much like before
but until then
I'll simply
hang tear streamers
falling limply
in the darkness
of my room.
