Missing bits

A gap insists on being felt

Somewhere between the rush

of aimless meanderings

and the flow of inane thoughts


like a rock in the middle of a stream

causing a floating leaf to dash itself

It turns, swerves and rushes ahead, unhurt

yet I cannot.


 You left your words scattered all over

 They lie orphaned in our hiding places

 some still cling together,

 trying to recreate your image

 while life swooshes over them

 impatient to sweep away broken bits


Is it you I miss or myself

for I am just another bitmap image of us

a part, lovely when the picture is whole

a part of no use when the rest is gone.
