    ...somethings missing...

    ive searched high and low
    and here and there
    ive looked everywhere


    in my mind and
    in my heart
    ive even looked in the dark


    back through time
    and in the now
    but its no where to be found


    ive poured through words
    line upon line
    every structure and every rhyme


    ive dug through my soul
    time and again
    looked to the thoughts deep within


    ive searched the day
    and through the night
    so elusive when it hides


    under the bed
    and behind the couch
    but still it cannot be found


    in the closets
    that are overstuffed
    im starting to miss it very much


    the basements full
    but its not there
    i even went and looked upstairs


    ive looked on the shelves
    at the store
    but cant find it to buy some more


    in the car
    even under the seats
    popped the trunk to look and see


    in desperation
    ive sifted through
    the box of papers in my room


    its not in the cabinets
    where we keep
    all of the important things


    im not sure
    where else to look
    maybe in a dusty book


    perhaps i left it
    in my jeans
    with candy wrappers and different things


    or in the pocket
    of my coat
    on a hanger i dont know


    but i know
    i must admit
    that today i am missing it


    so ill go
    through my day today
    and i will try to be ok


    missing things
    the make me whole
    i guess i will just have to cope


    in my life
    ive lost many things
    but i really miss sanity

    this is great... reminds me of those days when I'm wandering around the house goin'... what did I lose that I am I lookin' for in this room... then I realize... it's my mind!

    If I feel physically as if the top of my head were taken off, I know that is poetry.

    Emily Dickinson (1830-1886) American poet.
