poetry by j matthew waters

classified love letter

you are no longer here on earth
at least a year ago now
but I can’t seem to let you go
your face haunts me to this day

some mornings I awake to tears
waiting for a call or text
remembering you were the only
one I allowed to call me ‘baby’

I miss the early days
when innocence was there
I miss your smile
your raspy voice
the bristles of your legs

I wish like crazy to go back
and fix all the bad times
to at least talk one last time
and forget for a moment
why my heart feels so heavy

april two thousand sixteen
