Something Missing



Something is missing,
In the blueness of the sky,
It isn’t blue enough,
In the reflection of my eye.

It doesn’t seem right,
The silent tranquility,
Of my lazy afternoon slumber.
Is it the sluggish apathy,
Of my half-closed eyes?
I’d dare not look,
Nor try to know,
The truth outside.

Something missing in that,
Well-known smile,
That filled so many coffee cups.
Tell me, is it really a smile?

Some eerie feeling,
Haunts my lovely home,
Stolid curtains,
And vacant windows,
Look outside.
Even the wind,
Blows in gasps,
Of frigid apprehension.

When I look at something with jaded eyes, I can't see the beauty in it. I also feel like something is missing from my view of the world, something that I can't express, but I know it isn't there. Anyone else who looks at what I see, may not see the missing items/colors/pieces. But I know that it's gone.

How:
Someone :-)

This happened once before,
When I came to your door,
No reply.
They said it wasn't you,
But I saw you peep through your window,
I saw the light, I saw the light,
I know that you saw me,
'cause I looked up to see your face.

Angel:
Thats so true Angel ... Beauty lies in the eyes of the beholder. Often you see things when others can't and can't see things that to others are obvious ...

Deeeeeeeepaaaaaaaaaa:

Maddy:
Coffee cups can hold so much more than just coffee ...
