 -Missing Mark  -

What does it take to move on?
A marvelous sunset that turns you free
A fresh day of gripping laughter
Your heart so full of bloom that the very
Fragrance lifts you entirely to the fire of
Letting go, &  there you let it all turn to
Ashes and slowly walk away

 No, this is not moving on from you
For broken hearts of love lost, perhaps
For sadness from a vanished dream, maybe
But not for losing you

Sunsets are what you are missing
Though it is foolish, I know
For you are not truly missing anything now
And that is what is so strange to be sure of
That you are happier than you would ever have been here
And yet the pain that you will never return

 What makes for my loss of mind at times
Is your ending, so cruel
I forget my breath
And catch it midst a heaving ache within my chest

We would all love to see you just once more
To say something we wish we said
To hug you tighter because - this is it
To know, to just know for certain
That you didnt Feel that last sting.

There is no mending some brokenness
For not all loss is a line
But a circle instead.
