(West Terschelling)

Unwanted Guest


filled with your absence
the house and I wait
both knowing it is everywhere

in the living room it is blocking the telly
and in the bathroom mirror
it is your face not being there
that I see

at night I can hear
your absence soundlessly sneaking up the stairs
claiming the bed
and it won’t stay on your half
grabbing all blankets

your absence is becoming a frequent guest now
demanding attention
keeping me busy
filling the house
till you come back

Poem of the Day

poet Edmund Spenser

Of this worlds theatre in which we stay,
My love like the spectator ydly sits
Beholding me that all the pageants play,
Disguysing diversly my troubled wits.
