“Absence of Joyce”
Depart from me oh lonely heart, you have tortured me enough.
Wipe away the image of this girl I’m thinking of.
You know I can not have her, why do you persist,
To bring upon the longing for her one and only kiss?
Am I different from all the others who must have felt this way?
Is it possible for me to make the stars of heaven stay?
Inebriation overtakes me when I hear her lovely voice
Sobriety consumes me with the absence of Joyce

Thank you grain of sand for your comments. I admit it's pretty rough around the edges, I believe I'll tweak it once inspired.

Kamla, a compliment from you is like the sunshine on my cheek. Your "stuff" is exemplary.
