I Feel The Lack Of You

Rate: 17 Flag

I feel the lack of you
When I have some small repairs
That need to be done
But I lack the extra pair of hands
I need to do the job.

I feel the lack of you.

I feel the lack of you
When I’ve had it up to here
With the everyday bullshit
And I need someone
To listen to me blowing off steam

I feel the lack of you

I feel the lack of you
When some low blow
Has laid me out
And I need someone
To pull me up again

I feel the lack of you

So the house crumbles
The car falls apart,
Dreams fade
Nightmares return
I feel the lack of you

I feel the lack of you
Until with sudden silent understanding
I know as much as I feel the lack of you
I was the friend you never had either
And we feel the lack of each other.

This was written in response to Mark Trost's post today.
You have no lack of fine prose.....Sagemerlin
Now I need to go read Mark's. I'm sort of afraid to.
I like this. But I'm going to have to think about it. It isn't as small as it seems!
I like this poem on its own, independent of any reference. It has a universal recognition to it. ~r
Heavy on the lamentation
Rated and liked it... great lyric... now Im off to Mark´s but with my heart all melted Im not so sure I can take it

Hugs
Such an amazing poem, the depth and breadth seem to bring us to a greater loss, the lack of someone - amazing.

I should have known better. I wish I didn't understand this, but I really do. I have been homesick far too long.
Im back here where this full of emotions night started. Thank you for leading me to Mark though I came too late to enjoy him like you guys have. Thank you again. I owe you one. Really

Hugs and love of course
Beautiful, poignant and understanding. Mark will be missed here.
This is one of your finest poems I have ever read. I really liked this. A lot.
Wonderful. I read Mark's and saw your response that his post inspired this one. A true friend is such an important part of life. I wish one for everyone.
Oh man! I came back to read this one again... so wonderful... so magical... I feel emotional inside...
You are magical Alan
