Absence



she tied up her hair,
watching golden rays twist and turn.
she tucked the memories away in her pocket,
keeping them for the 2pm afternoons when all is silent.
the 2pm sadnesses and aches.

she misses you.
i see it in the way she looks at the barren trees.
i feel it in her voice when she talks about old things past.
they say time is precious so use it well,
but i think time has gone from her.
and so have you.

i hope you come back soon.
her words have turned light blue
and she spends most of her time sitting outside.
there is nothing wrong with that, of course,
but sorrows have sank deep into the soil.

things will be different.
but plants must grow and they will change,
so i know it is not a bad thing.
she has looked for summer somewhere else,
and when she found it,
she wanted to come back home.

summer wasn't the same there,
and you weren't there.
so she came back,
and now she sits in wonder
and ponders things i don't understand.

be home soon. we miss you.



p.s. i was gonna do a "this month" post but wasn't feelin' it. i might have to do a "last month" post. *chuckles gently* we'll see.

  14. my heart is hurting because absence makes a hole deeper than anything can fill. it's a parasite that cries out. all. the. time.

    but it's also beautiful. because you remember how much you loved, and love. and it makes you wonder if you could be missed like that as well.

    i love you cally. your beautiful words will make me cry to death one day darling <3<3<3
