Missing you-
inadequate words
they don't capture
the wistful, wrenching
peace of pain
I live

To know your movements
to clasp your hands
to laugh into eyes
the colour of a brimming sea
Oh I would be replete

but I must miss instead
mis-steps in time
mis-spell words I'd rather speak
miss beats of a heart
miss hours when I
could be with you
the days in time
that we're apart

I hope then
to mis-count those days
so they become none
mis-gauge the length of them
so I may miss you
no more
my Mis-ter (Almost) Perfect

Words do seem inadequate at times, but you have certainly found them!

Ok mis-sy, I hope you do mis-count the days, for I am in mis-ery without you by my side. I know well that the days 'til we met shall be mis-spent, and hope you don't mis-interpret, when I tell you that I love you.

You are so wonderful, make no mis-take, I can't possibly be mad at you for trying to beat me YET AGAIN!!!!!!
No mis-interpretation, my M.A.P.

Severn, I hope you know what you've gotten yourself into here! Mr. (almost) Perfect! His head is going to swell up after that one! LOL Your poem is sweetly sad, dear. And he is so obviously smitten!

PDV - it's a private joke - we both know we are anything but perfect - hence the almost!!!! (Maybe his head will get big enough so that he can bounce on over here to the land of sheep!!!) Thanks de Vine!

Smiles...now you two quit arguing over who's the lucky one...as I see it, you're both getting a pretty good deal
