The Confusion of Missing You

Kim’s on my mind tonight for some reason…so I’ve written another poem. Seems to be the only way I can put this into words. Here goes.

The Confusion of Missing You

It confounds me still
The way you left this world
Leaving us with so many questions
The least of which is ‘why?’

There was a time I didn’t doubt
The affection we held for one another
Now I don’t even want to remember
Because of the way things are

There’s confusion to this sensation
I hate the choice you didn’t feel you had
I’ve given up trying to find a reason
because that just makes me mad

I know there’s no kind answer
No reason that would do
I’m getting used to this confusion
The confusion of missing you.


Wishing you peace and strength on your journeys,
