Amiss


Do I miss you
Because
You're far?
Do I miss you
Because
It's been awhile?
Why do I miss
What do I miss
What what oh what
Is amiss?
Is it the absence
Of you?
The distance
Of you?
Am I night
Missing the moon
The twinkling of stars
All the strangers around me
Not bright enough
To lure me out of the dark
Corners that I hide; that I lurk in?
Or am I grass
Missing the sun
The warmth
The fiery burn
Motionless too long
Without a light breeze?
Or am I the shore
Still feeling
The splash
Of your farewell
Long after
You've waved
Goodbye?

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Browning

After
by Robert Browning

Take the cloak from his face, and at first
Let the corpse do its worst!

How he lies in his rights of a man!
Death has done all death can.
