Status: Finished  |  Genre: Poetry  |  House: Booksie Classic

Short thing, wrote it while crying, missing someone like crazy.

Sitting on hard, unfeeling concrete stairs

mascara trails of tears fall down my face

I'm kicking, screaming, fighting with all my strength

to gain some footing and be granted grace.

I know it's just 21 days, three weeks

but my thoughts are clouded by a huanting grief

I feel like without you to talk to

My smile was stolen by the cruelest thief.

Stale cigarette smoke curls

around my fingers and hair.

I hope that those oblivous around me

can feel my heaviness in the air.

But every drop that falls

from hazel green eyes day and night

is worth it to me because it's all for you

and when you're back this will all again turn to light.

Thank you so much! I was hoping to make everyone who read it feel heavy hopelessness and quiet hopefulness at the same time. I hope I succeeded!

Thank you! It was complete loneliness and despair. I hoped others would feel it. But this tough period is coming to an end--I get to see him in 4 days!! Be prepared for happier poems after that =]
