You Were My Rock That Fell Through

Poem By Eddie James

You taught me life more than death
You were there when I took my first breath
You sat with me though my deep deep pain
But no scar sat as deep as the one you fain to leave
It was you resolution that lead to this desolation
The sinking feeling that would lead to the deep feeling of devolution
The forth ward position instilled proved to be as guaranteed as your oath
From this place I taught myself the illusion of your non-existence, and faithfulness both
It was that falsehood which I convinced myself would get me through the next day, the lions share, the end
Unfortunately there is no fooling the heart, and your memory haunts me with heaviness in my chest as I try to pretend
That your strike did not cut so deep, and will not last until the bitter end
If today were the end, you win
The wound you inflicted penetrated much deeper than the skin

As I sit here in the other room I long to see you as I did once when you were far from here
I think that I miss your soft skin, your lips, your smile, and your spunk which I love and I fear

I Miss You

Into the late night I sit alone on my couch staring away into nothing
It is at this time that I feel the loneliest surrounded by the sounds that share this dwelling
Nothing else could fill this void that exists in your absence
This void that grows and darkens, it sinks deeper… without balance

Road Trip Home

It’s a safe trip from A to B
I drive effortlessly toward a destination I can almost see
But what if I want to turn around
I want to spin towards your sound
