A Poem by Jeff Bresee

The piece that is missing is the piece of my heart

That I threw like a stone when our love fell apart

Without looking I threw it as far as I could

Now I’m stuck with the fact…

That I’ve lost it for good

This is awe-inspiring in its simplicity and the succinct way it conveys the emotion, and it flows so effortlessly. I like it a lot.

I love the change in rhyming scheme in the second to last line, it draws out the ending for just a moment longer, without breaking rhythm.

As short as this poem is, it's impact is very big. This is a very strong piece it's hard to know when you've found that true love you want to hold onto forever because like you and many before you and surely many to come you never know what you have until it's gone. Thank you for sharing this piece I hope you get back what you have lost. Don't loose hope, good luck.
