"I am hearing poetry when awake, dreaming poetry when asleep, breathing poetry with each breath, I am living in a poem."

A Day Gone In Foolishness

Another day passed.
One in three hundred and sixty five
marked with an x on my calendar.

It was a common day,
nothing to write in my journal.
The sun rose and then it set.

What foolishness to have ignored it.
Moments gone and never regained.
I was too consumed in my boredom.

I had breath and health,
my love sitting next to me,
contentment begging
to be acknowledged.

If I could turn back the hour,s
I would clutch that precious day
and hold it close to my heart.

Grief has torn through me.
Yesterday I could hold you,
feel your touch on my skin.
Today you are gone.
