Absence of

Absence of

A Poem by . . .


When I look at you it makes me feel tired


The strands over your face

the scars on your cheek

a stoic stare that seeps into my soul


You walk long in the dark

stumbling alone

finding comfort in sound and yearning thought


All of my questions meet with silence

a quiet that makes the critter stir in my gut

for I suspect that an essential trait of being you

is the part that will always be absent


You are searching for a truth that does not exist

I guess if one can not find peace within
to accept the absence of everyone
and feel full
well
no presence would make a soul feel lifted
part of being in truth
is simply accepting everything for what it is and isnt
