The Space Between

Poem: The Space Between

***

I miss you in the space between

my heartbeats fed by yesterday’s love

My hopes of you take flight in dreams

as lonely as a crimson dove

.

Awaken not a sleeping wish

as honesty swims in eventide

A long-known soul, a timeline miss

a promise bled where chances bide

.

I miss you in the space between

perpetual paths our starlight knew

My hopes of you take flight in dreams

where you tell me, “I miss you, too.”

***

This poem was inspired by an online writing challenge: Write a poem beginning with the line “I miss you” and ending with “I miss you, too.” The Space Between is now one of my favorite compositions. As always, thank you for taking a moment to read my words. Have a beautiful week! -Ivy
