I Miss You


Much as I try to squash you
In the deep recess
Of my heart
I miss you

Much as I try to shield my heart
With an iron blanket
From the phallus-killing coldness
Of your love
I miss you

Much as I want to flee
Loving you
Thinking that you
Love another who does not love you
As much as I do
I miss you

Much as I try to drown
My thoughts about you
In the ocean of my busy schedules
I miss you

Much as I wish
I never met you
To love and miss
I miss you

Much as I try to uproot
And destroy all signposts
Of our love
I miss you

Much as I wish there is no you
To miss
I miss you

When there is no you
In my thoughts to miss
I miss to miss you
And miss you much more.

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Lord Tennyson

It little profits that an idle king,
By this still hearth, among these barren crags,
Match'd with an aged wife, I mete and dole
Unequal laws unto a savage race,
