What if I

What if I disappeared?
Would you look for me?
Would you call my name into 
the galaxies afar and would you 
think of me as you fall asleep in 
your bed at night.

Would you imagine my voice 
carried on the wind could you 
feel me all around

As I travel on roads singing 
your song burning the bridges 
that tear at my heart.

Would you watch the midnight 
news hoping to see my face 
hoping I'm still alive somewhere out there 
in space 

Could you replace me with 
someone else holding your 
hand kissing your nightmares 

Would you forget my name in 
passing as I'm running from 
everything praying it won't 
catch me

Ill see your face in every rear 
view mirror but blow it away 
with the smoke from my 
ciggarette hanging from my lips

You'd never feel my gentle 
caress against your your 
fevered skin never hear me 
laughing at the crazy things 
you say you wouldn't catch my 
tears as they were falling an 
empty space takes your place 

Would you look for me if I 
disappeared today?

    Sometimes, matters of the heart just can't be summed up. Especially when tomorrow is in question. This was intense & written with raw honesty. Great work!

    Kinda long-- I don't like long poems. When I click on a poem's title and a bunch of lines and stanzas come out, I groan, but I read any. You did a good job. Not my style though. I prefer what the Bard said "Brevity is the soul of wit..." (Hamlet). gabe
