Still Missing – A Poem

Still Missing

It might be two weeks
or a day
– if I wanted it to
it could be a minute or a second –
because I determine the line
between missing and gone
and that is why
you are missing until found.
That’s the horrible thing
about hope
the not being magical thing
and the hopelessness that follows.

  1. Never really thought about how missing and gone are so similar, but so different in certain situations.

  2. Beautiful and True Lines..
    They make me wander about in the lost and forgotten past. 🙂
