Leaving Me

I miss you most
When you’re sleeping
Next to me
When you’ve furrowed away safely
Under your beloved blankets and
Faithful pillows

There, I lose you to your secret world
Where your incoherent grunts
Slight nods and tossing
Respond to whatever your dreams may carry

I am envious of where you go
And how you find that kind of peace
I am envious because I can never
Find that kind of peace

I want so badly to inch
A little closer
To remind myself we are together
On different halves of this same bed

But I wouldn’t dare
For fear that I might brush away
The serenity you feel you so deserve

And there is a dull insistent ache
When I wonder what security
The comforters bring you
Which my side of the bed cannot


About Margaret Wang

In this crazy World, if we have something to say we should say it; whether in word, song, dance or paint. As writers, we write what we must, what we see, what we feel and what others experience but cannot articulate or understand. This is the duty and power of the writer; to release into the world our visions and our passions as if bleeding dry. Here at Stuck Pig I give you my word and hope that my voice reaches like minds so they know they are not alone, and unlike minds so they may share my glasses for a day. This is life lived as me, digested by me and translated for anyone caring to step out of their shoes for a few paragraph’s length. I am vulnerable and opinionated. You may judge me justly or unjustly, as I judge the rest of the world. I invite you to view Life through my window. View all posts by Margaret Wang
