Wish You Were Here

Untitled Poem

When the world has gone dark and streetlights are on
Sometimes the sky isnít yet black as night
Thereís only a few stars, the moonís not visible yet
And the skyís a lovely shade of grayish-dark-blue.

When Iím around people who donít know me well
Even though I know lyingís not right
Iíll hide who I am, how I think, what I know
And instead Iíll say things that arenít true.

When lifeís getting hard and my future looks scary
And Iím avoiding a breakdown with all of my might
The world shows its fangs and problems are piling up
And Iím not sure what I can Ė or should Ė do.

When the world makes me laugh at the absurdity of it all
And I want only to share my delight
I sometimes have trouble, when I look around
And try to find someone whoís laughing, too.

When Iím alone sometimes, or when Iím surrounded
My heart starts to hurt and my chest will feel tight
Thereís something wrong, something painful, I donít know what
And then I realize Ė whatís missing is you.

what do you think, and do you like the title?
