I Missed You

my saturday is gone
my saturday was a bore
it feels like i am hanging
on something that i tore

maybe it was my heart
maybe it was someone
my mind is failing me
it feels like i am done

i sit on the couch
i changed every television channels
and i am wondering alone
my mind is freezing on a wondering panel

like a cage or a prison
being held for what it is done
what was done was that i lost you
and this is what i had become

it is not sorrow
it is neither my emptiness
for it was not empty
it was filled and always be.

but why do i feel this way?
why do i feel a sense of astray? 
why do i feel lost and disarray?
i am sitting on a couch
but also passing my day

so the song sings in my head
and i cannot leave without a doubt
that i missed you within me
and i missed you
with all my remaining pieces 
of my heart.

    Eric, torn hearts and failing minds are powerful images. Go outside and listen to the song birds. God's creatures provide such wonderful inspiration. I am just getting to know you through your wonderful poetry, and I must say I like what I am reading. Love, Carolyn

    This is a very touching piece of art..I can feel the longing and the pain in the piece.. you wrote the piece well by giving us indications of how much the heart is aching..well done.
