Love Blind Duo-rhyme

I used to clearly see your face
But now you’re gone; as if erased,
Misplaced, or hid, or left behind,
Or lost somewhere inside my mind
I want you back; my heart is twined -
A Celtic knot I can’t unwind 
That aches your loss; I feel consigned
To memory’s unfair design
How can I love you, yet be blind?
You’re still a blank, still undefined
I keep on searching, frantic paced
I need to fill this empty space…

    Susan, the Celtic knot had me all wrapped up in this one!! I love the clever way you presented your message of love's frustration within this duo-rhyme form. I know you told me it was difficult for you to write this kind of poetry but you CAME THROUGH, lady. You did GREAT, and big congrats on your well deserved win!!
