When you miss someone

When you miss someone

A Poem by Stolfi

Deciding to stand up and move on.

[There are days when I sit by the window and quietly observe the wind kissing the flowers before it's gone]

On these days
I lay on my bed and I daydream away
I can feel your hands and smell your hair
And it hurts just a bit to know you're not there
Where I can touch you and greet the pattern of your eyes

So I try to ignore how much I miss you

But the angst eats me whole, it makes me cry
I overthink that last night
You were the best I've ever had
I didn't think it would be like this
How could I know we'd not be back?

So now, what I have left

Are these days, when I just sit back
Right by the window, where the wind blows
It kisses the flowers, so gently it goes
And as it repeats itself, I stand there
Working up the courage to leave that chair

When I see both lovers: the flowers and the air

The thought is so strong, I can't help but feel blue
Those lovers remind me of me and you
So I have no option, but to take a deep breath
Close the blinds, leave the room and count to ten
I owe this to me, I'll be alright once again

I'm here because I like to write and since I've got so much time during this quarentine I wouldn't mind interacting a little bit with other people and making some friends :-) more..
