i had missed you before i'd met you;
i am missing you before you've left
&today you are gone.

there is nothing,
no drink nor organic acid nor chemical high
to dim the lights on the epilleptic flashes
of love i can't let go,

the panic i blindly follow
as your airplanes leave from boston
&chicago and turn from wings to wheels
as a bus takes you three hours further
to a war zone in missouri.

you told me you loved me
as you vanish for nine months
of the next year.
you promise letters to make up
for the fear you impressed upon us,
love i never let leave,
an empty room i could never stay;
you promised me words
&a heart a thousand miles west
&hopes through two letters a month
that we will not be as broken

as the mirrors i look into,
trying to find what my face looks like
when i know i am wrong.
i want to see the beauty
that men who love me see;
i want to hold onto you
while promising myself to another,
much nearer.

i love you until it hurts
i love you until i can't any more
and i love you still.
leaving you is an empty room
&i can never be alone.
a fort in missouri
i pronounce is misery for a single reason
i don't know how to do love

You are welcome, dear. I actually think these may have drifted into my subconscious while I was sleeping. :O_o:

the first and the last stanzas are my favorite; they nestle in the hole of my heart

So perfect. Believe me when I say I know how you are feeling, and how you captured the essence of it here
