Happy

You know what would make me happy
If the road could read me a story
If the plants could whistle me a tune
If no one remembers my name
If I could stand in a crowd without anyone knowing who I am
If I could stand in a crowd without knowing who I am
If the skies could clear for the stars during the day
If telescopes could find stars yet unborn
If money was a non-issue and I could stay in a village where I rule as a mysterious king
If time would stop and reverse so I could watch a tree come back to life
If bells would ring when I sing
If I could sleep without crying
If I could breathe without wondering if someone else took their last
If you would love me the way I love you
I would be happy
If only for a second
I would be happy

I Miss You

I miss you because the night frightens me
I miss you because I can’t remember why I don’t miss you
I miss you because the sun isn’t shining anymore like how it was when we were talking
I miss you because all that you said is echoing over and over in my mind
I miss you because the smell of your hair is lost to the smell of dinner
I miss you because the colour of your fingernails is washed away into the seas of misery
I miss you because the milk I drink is as white as your teeth
I miss you because I don’t know what else to do but to wait for you
I miss you because at work people don’t remember what my favourite movie of all time is
I miss you because at home the parents think I’m the worst child in the world
I miss you because you are you and I am me and we were meant to be but I don’t know anything anymore
I miss you because you are always on my mind
And yet I tell myself not to miss you
To keep moving forward
And yet my pillow is wet from tears
And my heart is breaking into pieces
Yearning
Waiting
And imploding from the coldness of the world
When the sun of my world disappears for the night
I miss you because you are all that and so much more
I miss you
