Missing Link is originally from rural Ohio. He currently lives in Hillsboro, OR. with his Wife and two Sons.

I wrote this February 28, 1997

Don’t want to work no more right now and I’ve nothing else to prove. Want to love but I know it won’t last so I don’t want to love.

Looks at me and I know. She knows I know so leaves me alone and searches for one who doesn't. I use to not know and was better off?

Don’t like to travel anymore cause it’s all right here. Don’t like the telephone anymore but I still like to write and sing…when I’m alone.

I’d like to lay down and not wake...sometimes.

Rain - Crows - Wind

I love the candle flame when I’m alone.

When I’m alone the candle flame speaks to and soothes my soul.

My soul is a candle flame.

      Hi Naomi, I'm glad you can relate to my hub. I am now 49 years old. Take care and hang in there!

      It's soothing in a sad way but at the same time relatable to how I feel most times. Funny thing is, this poem is a couple of months older than I am.
