Missed Appointment – Written Monday 20th September 2010 (Aged 35)

Missed Appointment

do not mistake –
love or emotion
for anger and hurt
or even disappointment
the two –
are very different
once was starved to death
ad the other is just –
bitter words under my breath
or it is –
perched on my lips
but these days i do not miss
i feel like every part of me
was in every kiss
and now it has gone
but i want it back
there is no point in regretting
do not confuse –
love or emotion
for anger and hurt
or eternal disappointment
one came to me
the other missed its appointment
