anger

When the hurt

Is replaced

By anger,

A piece of you

Dies,

Along with the memories

Of happiness.

Enough already

I’m as tired

Of the words

As I am

The tears.

I’ve written

Enough

And allowed

The tears

To roll

Long enough-

Enough already,

I just want

What I want.

wrestling

I wrestle

With so much-

Too much-

Some days

And nights;

Memories,

Feelings,

Desires,

Regrets (though I don’t believe in “regret”),

Wants,

Needs,

You…

Too often

It’s you.

The memories

Of you-

Smells,

Tastes,

The intimate knowledge

Of your skin

And the aching

To be

Pressed against it

(you)

Again.

It’s always

You-

Always.

Some days

Some days

It just hurts,

Other days

It’s crippling,

But every day

The hole is there

And the emptiness

Stares back at me.

I smile

When I can,

Because I know

I should,

And to avoid

The questions

And looks

Of suspicion.

I hide

In plain sight-

More from myself

Than from others-

Because I can

And need to.

Some days

It doesn’t matter

How I feel

Because I have

Enough

Distractions

To keep me

Uninterested

In hurting myself,

Or acknowledging the pain.

Some days

I muddle through

Without thinking

About it,

But those days

Are rare

Gifts-

And far too infrequent.

She knows

She knows

That I think

Of her

Every day-

Multiple times

Each day.

She knows

That I miss her

And that goofy

Smile

With the slightly buck teeth,

As well as

The laugh

That’s louder

Than it needs to be

Sometimes.

She knows

That I miss the touch

Of her

Skin

Against mine-

And the smell,

And taste

Of her.

She knows

The memories

Are there

And aren’t going away any time soon.

She knows-

I know she does.
