Ms. Everything ii: the feeling of something missing

lost myself
too busy loving you
but you’re not to blame
that much I know is true

and though life is better now
since we’ve been separated
every now and then I find myself wondering
what if instead of space
we had given each other just a little more room to breathe

whatever the case
one has to remember their name
and do what they have to
so yes, things will never be the same
but then again, can’t say I never knew the nature of the game

still, sometimes there’s a longing for those days
when we were a strong team
pillars of power with the same vision
before we got estranged
like Putin and Yeltsin

and it makes no sense
pointing fingers instead of working with what’s at hand
these cards which have been dealt
and try to just forget the past
or hope that maybe one day
the feeling of something missing
will at last disappear

    More room to breathe instead of space apart is lovely. It reminds me of Rilkes’ “two solitaries saluting one another across a divide.” That always appealed to me.

    Interesting… I’m definitely going to read some of Rilke’s poetry now, thanks ☺

    I think you’ll like it. My “quote” is not an exact quote but close enough. Don’t remember the name of the poem.

    He appears to have been a fascinating character from the wiki bio. Will search for his material and I’m sure I’ll spot the paraphrased sentence in one of his works ☺ thanks
