Yearning touches bruises

Turning them into scars

Self medication heals

Scratching loss into innards

Severance relieves pain

Breaking essential ties

Balm permeates a calm

Wrapping itself into hurt

Tears formalize mourning

Pearlizing as they shed

Pause allows a remembrance

Relieving the chatter

Medication delivers kindness

Measuring loss in caplets


Yearning for you

The void of your absence

Ensures a daily grounding

Into existence on your behalf

Sorrow brings a nutty obstinacy

To life & extracts a fullness

Creates a remembrance canvas

Yearning is hard work

Because it keeps you near

Rooting both me and you

In the truth of departure

the stillness of presence

and a nagging, ache that

whispers of the dawn

One thought on “Yearning

  1. Meditation is the medication which provides a healing touch and kindness to that lasting
    Yearning for the departed.and then thvTruth
    dawns upon you that eveything in this life is ephermal.Realization of this Truth is the Balm
    VERY WELL Written the poet has kept the Caption of the poem throughout
    Proud of you
