Blank Joy

She who did not come, wasn’t she determined
nonetheless to organize and decorate my heart?
If we had to exist to become the one we love,
what would the heart have to create?

Lovely joy left blank, perhaps you are
the center of all my labors and my loves.
If I’ve wept for you so much, it’s because
I preferred you among so many outlined joys.

    Not sure how 25 days of poetry works if you just take poems you like and share them. But my girlfriend is going away for Christmas so I wrote a poem for her. So I thought I would share it
    Hope you all enjoy

    Missing you today

    If i had it my way. I would be with you on this day. The poem may be an utter disgrace. But i write this poem to a smile on your face.

    I enjoy everything that we do. I don’t know what I would with do without you. The feel of your lips and the feel of your face. When I see you again your entire body I shall embrace.

    Your laugh gives me chills. When i am with you i can hardly keep still. even love the sound of your name. Not being with you today cause me pain

    I want to hold you close and never. let go I miss you today just letting you know.
