you are missing from me

When I Falter

I closed the door and all the the windows.

I closed the door and all the the windows. I go about my daily life as strong as I could be.

I closed the door and all the the windows. I go about my daily life as strong as I could be. I get better at not thinking about us.

Like this morning, I woke up and got out of bed.

Like this morning, I woke up and got out of bed. I fixed myself some coffee as I look out the window and assess the wall I built to protect myself.

Hmm... Looks good.

But there are moments when I fail.

There are moments when little pockets of light stream through holes I forgot to patch and mend.

There are moments when little pockets of light stream through holes I forgot to patch and mend. There are days when you come knocking at the door I so carefully blocked.

There are moments when little pockets of light stream through holes I forgot to patch and mend. There are days when you come knocking at the door I so carefully blocked. And when my defenses are finally worn down, the door slowly creaks open and you...

You peek in.

You ask, 'is anyone there?'

And the first of the tears start to fall.

I can almost feel your fingertips stroking my hair.

Whispering, 'did you miss me?'

And I give in.

'Always... all ways.'
