Missing You

You left in a second,
Not a word to signal your leave,
Vanished into the skies like a breath released,
You left me behind like yesterdays trash.

I should feel anger,
I do,
At times,
But mostly I just feel empty.

I want to hate you,
I want to seek my revenge on you,
I want to pull your heart out with my bare hands,
Mostly I want to hurt you like you hurt me.

But it’s you I see every time I close my eyes,
An indelible print scoured there for life,
Why should this be?
Why can’t I hate you?

The burning memories of a love lost?
The sad memories of a mind lost?
I no longer know,
I no longer care.

I just want to feel those strong arms of yours,
Wrapped round me once more,
To feel safe and loved once more,
To feel....anything but this never ending pain.

Matilda told such Dreadful Lies,
It made one Gasp and Stretch one's Eyes;
Her Aunt, who, from her Earliest Youth,
Had kept a Strict Regard for Truth,
Attempted to Believe Matilda:
