Miss You?

From: Like A Tiny Sparrow Rising From The Ashes

I used to miss you
Like a hole in the head
Like a hole in the heart
Like a hole in my soul
Just because
Because you weren’t there
When you were

I used to miss you

Like a phantom limb
That once was
But isn’t
It always felt like
You should have been there
Any minute
Maybe soon
But you weren’t
You never were
Even when you were
Especially when you were
And that was worse
Much worse
By far

I used to miss you
With an aching so bad
So very bad
Like a cancer
That wouldn’t have the nerve
To kill me

I used to miss you

But now
I miss you
Like the tumour
Removed
A virus
Destroyed
A spot
That’s been squeezed
A rabid animal
Put down

Sayonara
Farewell
Goodbye
Good riddance

I used to miss you

Ha!
If I missed you again
It would simply be because
I am a poor shot
With a rifle
